What are the limits – or possibilities – of a sense of belonging amid rising fear and tension in an unsteady world? In her newest work, internationally acclaimed choreographer Colleen Thomas delves into the embodied experience of self, perception and connection in a climate of heightened political and social unrest. With a cast of dancers from Poland, Ukraine, Belarus and the U.S., but the sun came up and we were here asks if the expression of our individual essence, intuition and power can be the antidote to division in a fractured world.
"The beautiful and ominous mingle in thoughtfully poetic ways."
