The Crossroads Project team: violinist Rebecca McFaul, cellist Ann Francis Bayless, violist Brad Ottesen, violinist Robert Waters, physicist Robert Davies, composer Laura Kaminsky, and historian Jason M. Kelly, in Indianapolis
Conceived in 2012 by Utah State University physicist/climate scientist Dr. Robert Davies with The Fry Street Quartet, composers Laura Kaminsky and Libby Larsen, visual artists Rebecca Allan, Garth Lenz, and Lyman Whitaker, The Crossroads Project is a multidisciplinary performance piece that has been presented at numerous venues across the United States, in Brazil, and Mexico.
Layering spoken word, music, and visual imagery, we explore the personal and global dimensions of climate change and environmental sustainability. Our creative collaboration draws upon the complementary perspectives of our disciplines-science, art, and music-to address the complex challenges that we face in the stewardship of the planet. Each performance incorporates a dialogue with our audience about the impact of climate change upon their local region and, in some cases, a longer creative residency within the community.
"The time has come for us to believe what we know." Rob Davies
