Festival on hiatus, we will return The Gem Theatre – Kannapolis, NC
Saturday Oct. 6 @ 3 p.m.
Along Core Sound lies a string of small fishing villages where many families have lived and worked for centuries, adapting to the harsh environment, unique ecosystem, and ever-changing geography of the Carolina tidal basin. Maintaining traditions based around this adaptation in the climate of a frontier culture, the original residents are now seeing their rich traditions eroded by an array of challenges, including water pollution, development and relocated outsiders. Atlantic depicts ancestral attitudes of interdependence between community and ecology being eroded by a rising tide of free market forces, and a ferociously independent people organizing to fight for their mutual interests.
