Dance, music, puppetry, video – and science! –  will help tell the story of a group of young climate activists looking for answers for the future in the wisdom of plants and Indigenous caretakers.  Director-playwright Johnny Blazes has been working with the students and teachers of Level Four (5th and 6th grade) to draw upon their year-long classroom study of the book Braiding Sweetgrass for Young Adults. As Robin Wall Kimmerer writes, “All flourishing is mutual,” and we have brought this theme to the support, the content, and the production of The Roots We Follow!

Our show will be performed at the Cahner’s Theater in the Museum of Science. We’re so excited to have this opportunity to share our message and mission with the wider community. The two performances will be on Thursday, March 7 at 10:30 am and Saturday, March 9 at 3:00 pm. Please register to reserve seating.
