Histories and Healings: A Dance-Theater Experiment
Where or when does personal history become social history? How can we use art to heal into the present? Two friends from diverse backgrounds reflect on their experiences of family, culture, and trying to feel at home in Santa Rosa since the 1960’s.
Using dance, drumming, singing and storytelling, they take the audience on a literal journey through the History Museum. They perform stories of their respective black and Jewish families, and their own tales of swimming against the cultural mainstream. Who is welcome in Santa Rosa? How can we welcome ourselves?
