More about Letters to Earth
The Earth is made of the magic of nature—wondrous ecosystems (biomes) which make up the world we call home. For one special morning, the dancers and storytellers of Company | E and the Musicians of Sound Impact invite you to explore the Letters we write to Earth. It's a celebration and, at the same time, a cautionary tale of our impact on those biomes as told in the stories of “We Hear You–A Climate Archive.” 77 young people from around the world came together virtually to create and share their stories about what it’s like to be alive at this pivotal moment for our only home. Come for a wondrous experience and learn about how we can celebrate and heal the Earth, becoming agents of change.
