CRY YOU ONE
CRY YOU is an outdoor performance that moves to several locations in the Parish. This performance investigates land lost in Southeast Louisiana and how land loss relates to cultural loss in the areas most affected by land erosion. Their goal is to get people out on the land, to witness the rapidly-changing landscape and to hear stories from people most affected by this change. The performances will take place on four weekends (October 18 through November 10, 2013.) This is something to look forward to and something the Isleños Community will find interesting. Choose a weekend and save the date.
