About the Production: Through a ceremonial meeting of the Elements (Sky, Fire, Water) performed by Stiltworld, "GAIA" Mother Nature and Earth is born. The story takes us through relationships from early civilization, living and working with the land, to the industrial revolution and then a fast forward jump to present time. Unraveling the destruction of the family unit, humanity and our connection and balance to the Earth. Inevitably it is the children that light the way for our future as we discover how to live in balance and harmony with our family, our community and the Earth as we "Unplug and Re-Connect". The purpose of this event is to entertain, educate and inspire. A Q&A with the cast and Artistic Director, Anacia Weiskittel will follow the event. This is a special engagement Preview fundraiser to raise the necessary funds to complete, costuming, sets/props and extended performance and show how powerful and beneficial this production could be for our community locally, nationally and internationally.
