Sat: 5pm

Sat: 8pm

Sun: 2:30pm

With guest artists Samantha Geracht and Jim May, Artistic Directors of Sokolow Theatre Dance Ensemble 

A woman sits alone in an evening dress attempting to relive her romantic past.

Couples dance together, oblivious to the plight of their fellow countrymen. 

Through both original pieces and masterworks the anguish of the human condition is presented in dance with startling and loving clarity. 

Experience the unique vision of iconic American choreographer Anna Sokolow,

from the stark simplicity of her “Lyric Suite” to her meditation on alienation in the modern world in “Escape.” 

Then consider the contemporary world in Robert E. Cleary’s “This is Not America,” and Lisa Thurrell’s uplifting “Partita & Chorales.
