Making a Difference in the Lives of Youth and Elders
When these teens and seniors got together to build, not only lasting friendships but to create a live event, based on their individual visions of peace, the energy was electrifying. The magic began when they connected in rehearsals, sharing their own personal experiences, bringing them to life through music, dance, poetry, and video. And then it happened…10 days before opening night the pandemic changed the course of their lives, their work…and the world. Like so many others, the performance was postponed indefinitely.
After months of listening, “really listening,” and singing and dancing together through laughter, tears, and hugs, this large, boisterous, multi-generational family gathering was suddenly splintered into individual tiny boxes on a Zoom screen. Right now, this is the only way they can share their voices with you.
