As The Gulf Turns, Carol Mickett and Robert Stackhouse
Please note, this event has expired.
Our eco-systems are not in balance. Our planet and our waters are warming. As inhabitants of the West Coast of Florida, Mickett and Stackhouse in this show focus on the Gulf of Mexico.
As the Gulf turns, so does the World. Its bodies of water, masses of land, the great expanse of sky, and all its living and unliving inhabitants form a collaboration of eco-systems. Because of decades of human use of fossil fuels and the deforestation of our planet, there has been a significant increase of heat-trapping Carbon Dioxide (CO2) in the world. Our eco-systems are not in balance. Our planet and our waters are warming. As inhabitants of the West Coast of Florida, Mickett and Stackhouse in this show, as in their past work, focus on the Gulf of Mexico. For what happens Here in the Gulf impacts and is influenced by what happens There in the rest of the World. In particular, this show acknowledges the effects of the warming of the Gulf and the waters of the World by their over-capacity absorption of CO2. In so doing, they celebrate the local Florida mangrove and live oak which are natural, large absorbers of CO2. Our survival depends on reducing the levels of CO2 in the world. Like sand in the hour glass, our time is running out.
