Listening to Each Other

PERFORMANCE

Listening to Each Other

Date: September 1, 2019 — May 31, 2020


Clean out your ears, don’t listen for what you already know.
— Rumi

 

Listening to each other — a simple, yet powerful action that goes beyond conversation. Music, dance, theatre, and film are all ways in which we share and receive stories, transcending languages and cultures.

 

This profound act of truly taking in what others say is the inspiration for our 2019/20 Performing Arts season, Listening to Each Other, featuring musicians, actors, and dancers who share stories that connect communities, preserve culture, and spur social change.
