The versatile dancers, 9 men and 15 women, weave their real life experiences into a passionate interpretation that ignite collective memories that have shaped us as unique individuals and as a larger community and global world. The evening will also invite us into ourselves and reveal the diversity and complexity of our relationship with our Faith, as well as what binds and synchronizes us as humanity. In the format of dance, art, poetry and music, the burning points of our lives will become the unmistakable turning points and the gracious inspiration of a genuine community performance.
