The Sea Pageant

The Sea Pageant, Newport RI (image via Providence Athenaeum)

A few months ago I got to interview Rebecca Noon and Jed Hancock-Brainerd from Strange Attractor, the experimental group putting on a sea pageant at Easton’s (First) Beach for Monday’s big solar eclipse. We’re too far north for the total eclipse; we’ll experience about 2/3 totality. One hundred performers will perform on the beach with the sea as their audience. There’s a flash mob bit at the end, if you’d like to learn some quick choreography first. You’re also welcome to observe the performance, but the organizers want to remind you that the performance is intended for the ocean itself.

Note: you’ll need to bring your own eclipse glasses if you want to look at the sun. Looking directly at the sun without protection is a terrible idea.
