From Chairs Doris Jacobs, Kim Jacobs Calloway and Teffy Jacobs:

We are thrilled to announce that THE WAY OF THE RAIN – HOPE FOR EARTH will, at long last, have its U.S. premiere in Dallas at the Meyerson Symphony Center on October 22, 2022, as part of EarthX’s Half-Earth Day celebration. This beautiful and inspiring creation for orchestra, chorus, film, art and spoken word was created and directed by Sibylle Szaggars Redford in collaboration with music composer Tim Janis and performance film artist Floyd Thomas McBee and will be performed by The Dallas Symphony Orchestra & Youth Chorus with special in-person narration and spoken word by Robert Redford. The evening is presented by EarthX Film, Dallas Symphony Orchestra and M3 Films.

This journey began over two years ago as EarthX and The Way of the Rain formulated plans to present this one-of-a-kind event in Dallas as part of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. We were excited for the opportunity to premiere this multidisciplinary environmental performance to U.S. audiences. While sadly, the global pandemic delayed those plans—we remain undaunted in our commitment to bring this performance to life.

Please join Co-Chairs Doris Jacobs, Teffy Jacobs, Kim Jacobs Calloway, and Honorary Chair Jacque Wynne as we gather with friends and family to Honor and Celebrate our Planet Earth – this experience is “a love letter to Mother Earth.” Proceeds from the evening’s performance will benefit EarthX and The Way of The Rain’s year-round educational activities.
