'At Water’s Edge/A filo de agua' is an open air, live music-filled production that tells the story of three women from three different generations and locations.
The final performance of Museum of Fine Arts St. Petersburg’s interactive bilingual theater and dance performance happens on Sunday.

The premiere of “At Water’s Edge/A filo de agua” will take place at the museum’s Sculpture Garden on Sunday, June 26 at 3 p.m.

The open air, live music-filled production tells the story of three women from three different generations and locations: one in Mexico, one in the United States and one not quite in either. The production follows the women as their lives intersect and stories, retold legends and feminist sentiments ensue. “At Water’s Edge/A filo de agua” includes themes of climate crisis, migration, disappearing homes and dividing borders, connecting movements for women’s rights with nature protection.

The production was created by nationally acclaimed choreographer Celeste Miller and USF Theatre professor Dor Arreola. It represents an international collaboration, with artists from Mexico including dancer Miroslava Wilson and vocalist Siki Carpio and artists from the United States including violinist and composer Chip Epsten.

The show is approximately one hour long and will be followed by a discussion with the artists.

The show is free to attend with the purchase of a ticket to the museum located at 255 Beach Dr NE. Museum admission is $10 after 5 p.m. on Thursdays and $20 on Sundays.

Event details and registration can be found via mfastpete.org.
