Weeping Mountain

Red Sky’s newest theatre dance work for family audiences is the “Weeping Mountain” which takes the audience on a journey through language, imagery, music, theatre and dance – all embraced by an essential environmental theme. “Weeping Mountain” is the story of a young girl’s courageous and inspiring journey to follow the weeping she hears in her heart and to answer Mother Nature’s plea. Lucy travels throughout the Bow Valley and the Canadian Rockies in search of the beautiful smiling mountain she remembers as a child, only to find that it is now weeping. A river of tears falls from the mountain’s eyes. The Earth has become too hot and its ice caps are melting under the sun. The world is too busy to have noticed, too busy to stop and listen. Lucy must make the tears stop. She finds a clever way to make people hear the mountain weeping for the first time and together they find a way to bring a smile to Mother Earth, and ultimately to their own hearts.
