Letters to Earth
Presented by: Company E

"Letters to Earth" is a full-length contemporary dance production based on letters written by DCPS middle school students to our planet about the climate crisis it is currently facing. The production will touch on science, environmental studies, basic geography, and the aspirations that our city's youth have for the planet and their generation as a whole. Students will get the experience of attending a world-class professional dance concert while learning about the climate crisis and connecting with their peers and their peers' ideas about our planet.
