Premier at The Grandel on the weekend of June 8 was wildly successful reaching 1350 people including 325 who had never attended live theater.
96% of the audience performance surveys indicated that the quality was “Excellent” and 98% said the content was “Extremely Valuable” to the community. The Grandel staff and Kranzberg Arts Foundation were fantastic and the renovations are awesome!
This contemporary dance theater performance challenges us to look within and at our shared history to rediscover the power that fuels “We the people!” Using dynamic movement, music, drama and spoken word Gitana will take you on a journey “between worlds.” As diverse Americans, what do we want to become together? How does democracy depend on our ability to connect with each other in authentic ways?
Vivian Anderson Watt, Director and Choreographer for BETWEEN WORLDS is a 2017 winner of the St. Louis Visionary Award.
