In the Waves, by artist Melissa McGill, is a series of live free public art performances activating the landscape and evoking the urgency of rising sea levels and a rapidly changing climate. The artist invites members of local communities to join the ensemble of this inclusive movement artwork and support the community through a shared meaningful experience about these environmental themes.
Be part of a community ensemble in this work’s creation under the guidance of the artist and Melanie George, producer and dramaturg and Davalois Fearon, choreographer. The project will take place at Rough Point in Newport, Rhode Island presented by Art&Newport, curated by Dodie Kazajian, with Newport Restoration Foundation’s initative Keeping History Above Water.
