Don’t walk with a rock in your shoe.
— The Sea Pageant Guiding Principle #3

A one-day-only, one-hundred-person, all-ages, all-abilities unison performance on First Beach in Newport on Aug 21, 2017 at 1:30pm, during a solar eclipse. Built with Rhode Islanders from many walks of life and disciplines, we are using our personal and historical collective history and memory to create a new piece of theater for our most important relative, ancestor, ally, and adversary: the ocean.
