Building on the fantastic reviews of the company’s award winning piece, Tetris, presented at The Performing Arts Center two years ago, we offer the world premiere of Rising Tide, a brand-new work from the innovative Dutch dance-theatre company Arch 8, commissioned by The PAC.
Arch 8 and choreographer Erik Kael are known for creating unorthodox, acrobatic dance for kids and grown-ups who can’t sit still, specializing in joyful and engaging interactive performances. Their work for young audiences encourages an active viewing, a participatory imagining on the part of the audience – and, oftentimes, a willingness to come up on stage and play along. A unique physical way to engage students in the discussion of climate change in and outside the classroom.
In-School residency programs available with this performance.
This project has received funding through a grant from the Netherland-America Foundation.
The PAC is proud to be supported by ArtsWestchester and Westchester County Government.
