Project Overview

This two-part program involving both Underwater Adventures from Minneapolis and a regional theatre/dance instructor was sponsored by and held at the Thorson Memorial Library in Elbow Lake, MN. The Underwater Adventures staff presented a program on water-related eco systems and animals that live near the water, most particularly the Mississippi River.

Chris Ray coordinated a theatre workshop during which the audience portrayed the sea creatures and animals they had just learned about. As they moved about their environment as their chosen creature, the both avoided natural enemies and tried to capture food for lunch.
