What are you willing to surrender to the sea?
June 8 will commemorate World Oceans day and what better way to celebrate the aquatic than to turn to great literary works. Linked Dance Theatre has created an immersive show based upon Oscar Wilde's the "Fisherman and his Soul." This adaptation takes a look at the world of the sea, sailing, and questions that are greater than ourselves all taking place on a ship from the 1930s—The Lilac.
