Resilience and Rebirth
Harnessing the power of music, words, and projected visuals, Resilience and Rebirth illuminates the universal constant that is the cycle of life. As we make our way through these uncertain times, some things we know will be left behind while others will serve as catalysts for new beginnings. Endless possibility remains plausible.
Works by Murphy, Piazzolla, and Clarke evoke the energy and emotion of cyclical transitions while the music of Hatzis and Wijeratne reminds us of the roots that keep bringing us home. Poetry written and performed by Jamaal Jackson Rogers defines the trajectory of this journey while projections created by Syrian visual artist Kevork Mourad depict deep emotional and mystical undercurrents.
This event may be enjoyed in person (up to 50 listeners) and online. An artist Q&A follows the performance.
