Invisible Rivers is a project led by Mondo Bizarro's Nick Slie and Land Memory Bank & Seed Exchange's Monique Verdin that employs the artistic practices of music, theater and boatbuilding to respond to the Gulf Coast region's interconnected struggles against coastal land loss, environmental racism and displacement. The Ringling will present two performances on Sarasota Bay and two community engagement opportunities as part of a dynamic, free 7-day ecoperformance festival in November 2024.
