In 'The Living Earth' IONA weaves together dance and spirituality to present a theatrical dialogue of universal concerns. The interactive performance, staged outdoors in tents or adapted to any open space, revolves around a Living Altar of sacred statues surrounded by nine separate performance areas designed to honor and bring awareness to the current state of the planet and human consciousness. The nine performances include interpretations of world peace, biodiversity, animal rights, Mother Nature, presence, nuclear disarmament, cultural and religious diversity, global warming solutions, and environmental protection; each punctuated with poignant choreography and woven together by the central cosmic circus.
