Event Description

Created in collaboration with the cast and creative team
Directed by Margarita Blush
Live stream performance: Wednesday, April 21 at 8:00 p.m.

Climb, take off, soar…

Rise to a higher point and at the same time, go toward the beginning, go back in time…

An original, collaboratively created visual theatre production, Ascend invites audiences to experience once again the ritual of theatre, coming together in a collective breath that transcends the everyday. Ascend lifts us up, nurtures our souls, and reminds us of the connections between everything in our world. It reminds us that life always finds a way forward; that beauty, hope, contemplation, and kindness are humanity’s greatest strengths and the only way toward a better future.
