Realized: Animating a Young People's Tomorrow combines stop-motion animation with live string quartet music to imagine our collective future. With animated films and stories inspired by a series of workshops with Maine high school students, Realized amplifies the artwork and voices of young people as they reflect on the present and imagine what a resilient, sustainable, and equitable future on this planet could look like 50 years from now. Featuring folk tunes and music by Caroline Shaw, J.S. Bach, and Philip Glass, Realized is a creative, honest, and hopeful multimedia program exploring the potential we all have to enact meaningful change in our communities.


About Halcyon: Halcyon is a Maine-based artist collective and string quartet that designs and presents multimedia performances that combine live music with science, film, art, and spoken word. These performances celebrate Maine's ecosystems and reflect on the challenges and opportunities we face in a climate-changed world. They draw attention to the daily rewards, difficult choices, and transforming reality facing our communities – acknowledging the need for creative and diverse communication that harnesses the power of cultural traditions, storytelling, music, and visual art to translate numbers and facts into something tangible and human. Halcyon partners with scientists, musicians, artists, and composers to present 4-5 multi-show performance projects throughout Maine each year.
