Upcoming Events & Performances.
In the coming weeks, Alluvium Theatre will continue to stage online events and performances over Zoom. These presentations and voice dances aim to echo the “alluvium” of interactions, encounters, and observations from 120 days spent along the Mississippi River. Over thousands of hours, a precious experience unfolded, and is now held in the body of many people, in the lives of a diverse population along the Mississippi River. We hope you will join us for any and all of these moments of reflection and reconnection.

LANDSCAPE | Coastal Louisiana
A landscape that is more water than land. A ghost of land that once was, subsiding, holding fast to memories, icons, identity. A fringe that a people, its people, are holding onto—fighting with everything they've got.
COMMUNITY | Shared Threat
Will the levees hold? Will the waters rise? Can I plant this year? Will FEMA arrive? Is my house still standing? Up and down the river, different but the same, the river yeilds a shared threat on its people.
VOICE | Brenda Hymes
Justice of the Peace and proud mother and grandmother. Voice gathered on the morning of November 2, 2019 at her home in Port Sulfur, Louisiana.

Throughout last summer's Relay and our recent Zoom Reunions, we've moved together down the great river from headwaters to mouth.
Through landscapes, communities and voices, we've listened and learned with you, sharing rituals, rhythms, and routines.
Let's gather again for a round of stories and conversation about the reasons we make the Mississippi River our home.
Check back soon for details, and register here to participate.
