"Evening" (live) as part of Dixon Place's and Creative Performances'Dance Bloc festival!

Description:

"Evening" from "Morning Afternoon Evening" is a dance/theater/poetry artwork that illustrates the cyclic nature of so much of our world and has particular relevance today with its themes of destruction leading to creation, endings leading to beginnings and darkness leading to light. The work confronts global and personal trauma and shows a process of accessing the strength, resilience and engagement that potential healing requires. It is also a reaffirmation of the beauty inherent in our universe and a reminder that "the darker the night, the brighter the dawn"  Daisaku Ikeda
