DUBAI: The Museum of the Future has announced The Pearl Diver’s Daughter will take place on Tuesday, March 21 at 7:00 PM, blending cutting-edge technology with choreography, music and narrative to take audiences beneath the waves of the Gulf in a tale of family, tradition, and the perils of the diver and the wonders of the sea.
A contemporary dance performance with live storytelling narration and suitable for all ages, the show utilises augmented reality to highlight the now-lost art of pearl diving, telling the story of a pearl diver, his daughter and a legendary pearl in a mix of history and artistic fantasy.

Emerson – American contemporary dance organisation, Company | E’s Executive and Co-Artistic Director – with music composed by Eman Al Hashimi, co-Produced by Abu Dhabi Music and Arts Foundation, US Embassy in Abu Dhabi and Cultural Foundation.
