The Great Liberation Upon Hearing
Once again the Dance Brigade takes us on an incredible journey presenting a new work, The Great Liberation Upon Hearing, a multi-media dance drama based on the Tibetan Book of the Dead. Working closely with critically acclaimed choreographer Sara Shelton Mann, Artistic Director Krissy Keefer creates a moving and compelling piece of theater engaging the audience emotionally and intellectually capturing the density and profound meaning of the enlightened manuscript. A translucent visual component depicts luminous images transforming the tangible and revealing the intangible. In these dark and trying times the passage to hope is in our rebirth and what better way to convey this than through this amazing multi dimensional work infused with genuine community spirit. A show not to be missed!!
