For thousands of years we have been using star charts, compasses, and environmental knowing to guide us on our journeys. RupLoops' latest show, "Magnetic North", calibrates the compass that lives in our hearts and focuses on the voyage that awaits us when we align our passions with our purpose. Through the use of samples of endangered environments and animals, plant and mushroom music native to BC and interactive games, RupLoops creates sonic ecosystems that invite us to grow our relationship to justice and the natural world. In a time when climate change and human impact endanger our future, through music, visual art, lyrics and interactive games, “Magnetic North” will encourage us to take action in a world that requires it of us. This pricing is only available to schools within BC. Pricing is different for performances/workshops booked outside of ArtStarts.
