In LA: Touch the Water Closes this Sunday

June 18, 2009

touchthewaterwebsiteimagePoet and performance artist Pat Payne aka Corvus the Crow writes to remind that it’s the final week of ‘Touch the Water’  and it’s about sold out! There are also river tours given by the Friends of the LA River during the weeknight performances which begin at 7pm. More:

The show features a wonderful cast of singing and dancing animals, a crazy Frenchman, a live band and a Native American ghost. It’s mostly kid-friendly (the s-word is uttered a few times and there a murder is mentioned) and the costumes are really imaginative.

May 28 – June 21, 2009
Wednesdays – Sundays @ 8pm

Rio de Los Angeles State Park – Bowtie Parcel

2800 Casitas Avenue, Los Angeles 90039

Touch the water. Come to the river this spring and let the magical waters of Los Angeles wash over you.Under the City of Angels runs a fierce river flowing from the mountains to the ocean. But do you know it’s there? Once an unpredictable and mighty stream, a bountiful life source subject to raging floods, the Los Angeles River has lived under a shroud of concrete for the past fifty years. Today, having been tamed and transformed into an industrial flood channel, the river is at the center of much debate. What happens when we change Nature? Should we free the river from her concrete corset and let Angelenos finally touch the water?

This play was created in collaboration with local river residents, engineers, biologists, environmentalists, activists, advocates and patrons who walk, fish, bike and ride horses on the Los Angeles River.

Part of Cornerstone’s ongoing Justice Cycle, a four-year series of plays exploring how laws shape and disrupt communities, Touch the Water takes on environmental justice as seen through the lens of the LA River and the people who live, work and play there.
