We hear a sampling from SeaChange: Reversing The Tide


Lisa Harrow and Roger Payne

will be performing their collaborative performance

"SeaChange: Reversing the Tide"

   Should everything dance to humanity’s tune, or does such a self-important view lead to the destruction of life on earth?
   This question is addressed by the performance piece SeaChange: Reversing the Tide. By combining the knowledge of science with the wisdom of poetry Roger Payne and Lisa Harrow argue compellingly that man is not the overseer of life but an integral part of life’s complex web, and that our survival requires that we attend not just to our own wellbeing but also to the wellbeing of the entire web of life.
   Written and performed by Payne and Harrow, and including the poetry of Shakespeare, Shelley, Robert Frost, Wendell Berry, Gary Snyder, Mary Oliver, and others, SeaChange: Reversing the Tide offers an exposé of the consequences of humanity's current indifference to natural laws.
