16th Annual Torch Awards Gala @ JW Marriot Marquis Miami
Apr 1 @ 6:30 pm

In April of 2017, the FIU Alumni Association will host the Torch Awards Gala at the JW Marriot Marquis Miami. This award ceremony was created in 2000 as the highest honor given to alumni by the FIU Alumni Association. Recipients are recognized according to their achievements in their specific professional industry and their contributions to society.

The FIU Alumni Association will celebrate the accomplishments of these prominent alumni and faculty members in style, offering dinner and musical entertainment. Whether you enjoy fine dining or the opportunity to network with members of the community, this evening will prove to be unforgettable.

Net proceeds of the Gala will support the future construction of the FIU Alumni Center, as well as support the First Generation Scholarship Fund. Philanthropic support to the scholarship fund is matched 100 percent by the state, making this fund a critical priority for the institution. 90 percent of fund recipients are minorities; the proposed gift is a unique opportunity to enhance the university’s ability to affect transformational change in the lives of South Florida’s underserved students.

A Sea Change – an Interdisciplinary Theatre Initiative @ Wertheim Performing Arts Center
Apr 4 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

About “A Sea Change”

To begin to find lasting solutions for climate change, a cultural “sea change” in people’s minds and hearts must take place.

Such a sea change would need to take place on a massive scale. Yet, while that vision might seem quixotically out of reach we can, in our own individual way, turn to our own personal resources to see how we might contribute to such a collective sea change.

While evidential truths, lectures, charts, pictorial images and data are essential to understanding the leading indicators of climate change, cold facts alone cannot complete the job of moving the human heart into action. Agencies must be involved with the capacity to personalize climate change. One such agency, we believe, is the living theatre.

Therefore, “A Sea Change” is an interdisciplinary theatre initiative that aims to draw together on stage science, journalism, history, architecture, arts and the humanities with the sole intention of moving the heart toward common sense action.

“A Sea Change” takes the audience on an intrepid sensorial journey through cutting edge technology to experience the work of students and faculty as they share solution-seeking research and storytelling, which includes a data-driven Sea Level Rise Toolbox that visualizes sea level rise, music molded from water data, virtual reality of mangroves, and the science of 3D web mapping by which one might receive early warnings of impending neighborhood flooding. Intersecting scientific analysis will be dramatic monologues and scenes, video interviews, choral music and dance.

 

Participants and Partners

As a participant in the FIU School of Communication + Journalism’s Eyes on the Rise effort and as a demonstration of concerned engagement across the university, the Department of Theatre has joined forces with a variety of FIU communities to create a 90-minute production in which incontrovertible truths of research will share the stage side by side with interpretative arts.

Our partners include:

  • FIU’s Society of Professional Journalists student chapter
  • School of Architecture
  • School of Music
  • School of Environment, Arts and Society
  • School of Computing and Information Sciences
  • Department of Journalism + Media
  • Department of Physics
  • Department of History
  • Library Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Center
  • Miami Beach Urban Studios
  • Sea Level Solutions Center
  • MAST@FIU BBC
  • FIU Office of Sustainability
  • Caveman Productions, LLC

 

Performance Dates and Future Plans

“A Sea Change” will perform for the general public at 7:30 p.m. on April 4, 2017, at FIU’s Wertheim Performing Arts Center on the Modesto A. Maidique Campus and at the Mary Anne Wolfe Theatre on the Biscayne Bay Campus at 7:30 p.m. on April 7, 2017. Seats must be reserved. Admission is free. Call 305-348-0496.

It is our intention to take the production to schools throughout Miami-Dade County and to schools beyond Florida with the belief that if enough young people experience the emotional and scientific truth about climate change, a collective sea change is indeed possible.
