Over the Near Horizon - a Tribute to Alaska History
A series of events dedicated to the Sesquicentennial Anniversary of the Alaska Purchase of 1867


RACS is commemorating the 150th Anniversary of Alaska's Transfer from the Russian Empire to the United States with a dramatic multi-media performance that weaves Alaska Native, Russian and American music, dance, photographs and video into a thought-provoking, multi-media 90 minute performance that explores the Great Land's history. Artists will take audiences on a magical cultural journey through Alaska's rich, sometimes tragic, yet always unique history, to a destination promoting the celebration of all cultures' contributions to this amazing place we call our home.

This captivating approach to exploring Alaska's history is designed to provide educational outreach, promote cross-cultural connections, and foster mutual understanding among Alaskans today for the sake of better tomorrow.

Over the Near Horizon producers are collaborating now with communities across Alaska to host concerts in Anchorage, Juneau, Sitka, Kenai, Kodiak, Unalaska, Dillingham, Bethel and Aniak. If you are interested in learning more about this production, please contact: Art director: Zlata Lund 907-230-0280
