GLOBAL CURRENTS Celebrating World Cultures & Earth’s Shared Resources

Water is life. It sustains us, and everything around us. It’s the original “highway,” linking us together. And it inspires us—the subject of poems, songs and dances.

VPAC celebrates water on February 25. A daytime performance festival in the VPAC Courtyard features six Los Angeles ensembles with origins in six regions of the world. These traditional artists have one thing in common — music and dance that honors and evokes water.

VPAC honors arts and culture from around the globe, and uplifts the artists who honor what is most elemental to all of us — H2O.
