On Time and Water

In partnership with the National Nordic Museum in Seattle, Andri Snær Magnason and Högni combine forces in a special performance featuring storytelling, images, old films and science. Based on his best selling book, On Time and Water, Andri Snær tries to grasp the great challenges we face. In the next hundred years, the nature of water on Earth will undergo a fundamental change. Glaciers will melt, the level of the sea will rise, and its acidity will change more than it has in the past 50 million years. These changes will affect all life on earth, everyone that we know, and everyone that we love. It is more complex than the mind can comprehend, greater than all of our past experience, bigger than language. What words can grasp an issue of this magnitude? One of the ways to understand the issue is through stories. Andri Snær tells us stories of glaciers, stories of his grandparents, stories from scientists, and even stories from the Dalai Lama.
