The Living Coast performance combines original music, live narration, and cinematic images of the Texas gulf coast. Surfers and sailors, shrimpers and oilmen, poets and scientists all share their stories about this complicated region of serene beauty, vast industry, and incredible contradictions. Supported by a grant from the National Endowment of the Arts, the concert will tour throughout Texas and the midwest in 2020.
The Living Coast film was produced by cinematographer Anlo Sepulveda and drone pilot Reagan Jobe. Climate scientists Wendy Gordon and Megan O’Connell perform on stage with Montopolis as well as providing educational outreach before and after the concerts.
