«It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement, the greatest source of visual beauty, the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.» -David Attenborough
We're partnering with musical duo Tenth Intervention to bring you the sweeping vistas and extravagant mating calls of Planet Earth II: Islands with a live score!
Remote islands offer sanctuary for some of the planet's strangest and rarest creatures. The rare pygmy three-toed sloth enjoys a peaceful existence on an idyllic Caribbean island, while nesting albatross thrive in predator-free isolation.
But island life always comes at a cost. On the Galapagos Islands, young marine iguana must escape an onslaught of deadly racer snakes the moment they hatch from the sand. On the sub-Antarctic island of Zavodovski, life gets more extreme still. Every day, one and a half million penguins risk being battered against the rocks by fierce waves as they try to get on and off the island.
Tenth Intervention presents contemporary music in New York City. Through collaborations with composers, musicians, visual artists, choreographers, and dancers, they produce programs that expand the reach of music to be diverse, pioneering, and socially conscious.
