The Earth Loves You is a groundbreaking new interactive performance from Joel Laviolette and Rattletree.

The work of Rattletree has evolved over the years from straight traditional acoustic Shona music to a fusion of midi ­triggered synthesized sounds with the ancient music.  The Earth Loves You will feature work from visual projection artists, costume designers and sculptors. Many aspects of the performance, including lighting elements, sound textures, and projected images, will be able to be directly controlled and manipulated by the audience with interactive "triggers" while the performance is happening.

By engaging with these custom made "triggers," the audience will be an integral part of the performance. Each show will be unique and something that everyone participating will be able to feel like they had an essential role in creating.
