Conceived by world-renowned environmental artist Sibylle Szaggars Redford to explore the issue of climate change, this live performance art experience filled with paintings, music, dance, film and spoken word is an homage to planet Earth.

“…a majestic work…”

            —Sarah Betts, Big Life Magazine

The Way of the Rain is a collaboration, not only with natural rainfall, but of different art forms. A moving, abstract, staged painting that transcends politics and allows the audience to discover the meaning of it on their own terms. It brings a hopeful message that raises consciousness and reminds us of our physical and spiritual connection to our planet’s plight and beauty.

“The performance is fluidly dynamic – like the American
Southwest thunderstorms that inspired [it].”

            —Michael Rogers, Film Music Magazine
