Join senior dance artists Suzette Sherman and Michele Green for a performance developed in collaboration with Dancetheatre David Earle! This hour-long program in the Helson Gallery includes a short introductory talk, six dances, and ends with a group discussion.

Dance is the physical portrayal of storytelling. The stories explore themes common to the human condition - friendship, loneliness, despair, entrapment, redemption and memories of the past. Passionate Heart removes lights, stage and costumes to present a raw, intimate experience between dancers and audience.

COVID-19 screening protocol is in effect and mandatory for all Town facilities, including the Helson Gallery. Pre-registration is required, and attendees must provide proof of vaccination upon entry to Helson Gallery. Attendees should also continue to maintain physical distancing and wear a mask as per public health guidelines. Seating will be distanced during the performance.
