How do our own experiences and perspectives affect how we interact with the world? Can shifting our focus or perspective open our minds and hearts to new ways of seeing and being in the world? Dancers and designers will play with and challenge the ways we see, experience, interpret and share in the final concert of the 2020-21 season.

From the Director: James Wallace

As we have struggled to navigate through the difficulties of this past year, we have finally come to a place where we see a shift. Performing arts are slowly reopening and this gives us hope that things are finally moving in a positive direction. The restrictions placed on us over this past year have forced us to become even more creative as artists, to shift how we normally work and find new ways of producing work. By responding to the pandemic through art, we create a type of therapeutic process that allows us to grieve, heal, and move forward.
