Every half hour, Louisiana loses nearly a football field’s worth of coastal marshes to the Gulf of Mexico. Land loss is ubiquitous, occurring even in interior areas. Six major hurricanes in the last four years have exacerbated an already dire situation. In Louisiana, so many of our cultural traditions and industries derive directly from our relationship with the rich waters and swamps that surround us. What will become of those traditions as the land that nurtures them disappears?

Loup Garou is part performance, part ritual, part howl to the world about southeast Louisiana’s plight. We invite you to join us as we sing a song of love and hope for our precarious homeland.

Presented by ArtSpot Productions and Mondo Bizarro in partnership with the Gulf Restoration Network and New Orleans City Park.
