Our Oceans are Drowning

Choreography and Performance:
Rosalind Masson

20 minutes

'Our Oceans Are Drowning' is a new work made for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2011 supported by Dancebase. This piece was inspired by current environmental issues surrounding the melting of the polar ice-caps due to global warming. Now in this moment, the smallest gesture can have the biggest consequence. Never has information flown so quickly and yet it is possible that we have never been less aware.

'There’s a visual poetry in Our Oceans Are Drowning , a thoughtful quality in Masson’s movement that lends subtlety and eloquence to her eco-sensitive message.' - Mary Brennan, The Herald 8/7/11.
