— The performance will be a structured improvisation utilizing words, (spoken or sung), movements and tonal structures. The structures for the dance and music will carry the form of the piece and communicate the essential theme. The improvisation will elaborate on those structures so that the work can take advantage of and amplify what is happening in the moment.
The essential intellectual theme is that through art and a reverence for life and all that is creative, we can create a world where Peace becomes possible.
We make a point of giving equality to all of the arts utilized in each presentation. This then becomes an example of how we can work together for mutual benefit. Each artist is encouraged to utilize the full strength of their artistic discipline, bringing to audiences a powerful and unique presentation.
The goal of this tour is to create a dialogue between participating artists and audiences that opens the mind to envisioning our role in the world as creative beings that can make a difference. By embracing creativity we find our strength and can reclaim hope in a difficult time.
