Raven Chacon & The Living Earth Show
Tremble Staves

more information  Know Before You Go

Texas Premiere
Tremble Staves is a collaboration between The Living Earth Show (guitarist Travis Andrews and percussionist Andy Meyerson) with Pulitzer Prize-winning Navajo composer Raven Chacon. Deemed “outstanding” (San Francisco Chronicle) and “transcendent” (Charleston City Paper) this challenging site-specific work is a wordless water opera synthesizing mixed media installation, manipulation of natural light and sound, and theatrical performance commenting on the urgent but approaching crisis of water shortage. Performed on the grounds of Laguna Gloria in conjunction with The Contemporary Austin’s exhibition This Land.
