Description

Stormy Weather is an interdisciplinary project combining science with music, movement, theatre and visual arts. Professors Aviles, Lindberg, and Anneser will work with PSU Meteorology, Visual Art and Education students, the Plymouth Parks and Recreation Department, the Flying Monkey Performance Center and Movie House and 30-40 children in grades 3-8 from the Plymouth area to realize this proposal.

The purpose of the project will be to explore four different kinds of storms (thunderstorms, snowstorms, hurricanes, and tornadoes) through weather content delivered by Dr. Aviles and the meteorology students, through fine art depicting storms in different mediums and the creation of visual art projects on storms delivered by Professor Anneser and her fine art students, and the producing of an original musical theatrical performance directed by Professor Lindberg with assistance from her education students. Entitled Stormy Weather, the production will incorporate projections created by PSU fine arts students and elementary age students, movement choreographed by a guest artist (TBD), and original soundscapes created by the children with guest artist Randy Armstrong. The PSU professors and guest artists will be assisted in their efforts by Art, Education and Meteorology majors through coursework and elected participation in the Cluster project.
