Program note: Gaia is the theory that the earth is essentially a living thing, all of whose components have a dynamic relationship with other life systems. Present in both spiritual and scientific realms, a constant across the many different views of Gaia is that balance must be maintained for life to continue. Inspired by this concept of interrelated change, the piece seeks to explore a similar evolutionary dynamic, highlighting the repercussions that arise when human actions threaten the earth's balance.
