Through Fish Eyes, a work that combines art and science, is a unique performance that utilizes the classical Indian dance form Bharata Natyam to create awareness about the world's dwindling marine ecosystems. The ocean comes to life, telling tales of how man and nature co-existed in harmony. The abundant and thriving ocean has now been ravaged by humankind, leaving it in a critical state. We are the hand that has destroyed it. Can we now be the hand of change, or is it too late?

Performance Timing: 65-75 minutes, with no intermission.

This project is made possible in part by Live Arts Boston grants from the Boston Foundation.
