‘At Water’s Edge/A filo de agua’ is an outdoor production filled with live music that tells the story of three women from three different generations and places.

The final performance of the St. Petersburg Museum of Fine Arts bilingual interactive theater and dance show takes place on Sunday.

The premiere of “Au bord de l’eau/A filo de agua” will take place in the Museum’s Sculpture Garden on Sunday, June 26 at 3 p.m.

The outdoor, live music-filled production tells the story of three women from three different generations and locations: one in Mexico, one in the United States, and one not quite into either. The production follows the women as their lives intersect and stories, legends told and feminist sentiments ensue. “At Water’s Edge/A filo de agua” includes themes of the climate crisis, migration, disappearing homes and dividing borders, connecting women’s rights movements to nature conservation.

The production was created by nationally acclaimed choreographer Celeste Miller and USF theater teacher Dor Arreola. It represents an international collaboration, with artists from Mexico, including dancer Miroslava Wilson and singer Siki Carpio, and artists from the United States, including violinist and composer Chip Epsten.

The show lasts about an hour and will be followed by a discussion with the artists.

The show is free with the purchase of a ticket to the museum located at 255 Beach Dr NE. Admission to the museum is $10 after 5 p.m. on Thursdays and $20 on Sundays.

Event details and registration can be found via mfastpete.org.
