Stunning new music, leading-edge science, animation and imagery from Steve’s Antarctic field seasons blended in collaboration with leading Antarctic scientists to tell the story of the Antarctic ice sheet in three parts: 1. isolate: the last 180 million years - other continents move away, the continent becoming isolated and the ice sheet forming 2. grow: the last 30 million years - the ice sheet forms and moves, accompanied by the haunting sounds of icequakes 3. breathe: the last 0.8 million years - the rise and fall of C02 in ice cores converted to sound and music, with a change at the end reflecting recent conditions This solo performance includes material inspired by exploration, an introductory talk and Q&A session helping you to engage in the performance and deepen your understanding of the ice sheet and related perspectives on climate change.
