Reversing The Tide In New Zealand

Reversing The Tide In New Zealand

What happens when a world famous actress falls in love with a world famous scientist? It's a question that can only be answered by seeing the sole New Zealand performance of the mesmerising and profoundly important show SeaChange: Reversing The Tide.

Sixteen years ago scientist Roger Payne met New Zealand-born actress Lisa Harrow in London's Trafalgar Square where he had just opened a Greenpeace rally for whales at which she was a celebrity speaker. He was there because he had co-discovered that whales sing songs. She was there because she had spent her career playing leading roles at the Royal Shakespeare Company and in London's West End, opposite such actors as Peggy Ashcroft, Judi Dench, John Hurt, Jeremy Irons, Peter O'Toole, and Patrick Stewart, and in films and television productions with such co-stars as Pierce Brosnan, Anthony Hopkins, Sam Neill, Glenda Jackson, and David Suchet.

Now, they have joined their two disparate fields in this performance piece SeaChange: Reversing the Tide, created by them to help us understand why a life that is based on sustainable and restorative practices is a healthier life, both for us, and the earth.

Practical information on how to achieve such a life is available in Lisa's book, What Can I Do?, which is an A-Z guide to internet sites offering information, resources, and ideas for taking action to help our environment and ourselves.

The Taikura Rudolph Steiner School is extremely privileged to be given the opportunity to host the only New Zealand performance of SeaChange: Reversing The Tide at their auditorium, and to welcome through their doors two extraordinary individuals who are committed to rescuing our precious oceans. This international production is truly not to be missed!
