This contemporary dance theater performance challenges us to look within and at our shared history to rediscover the power that fuels “We the people!” Using dynamic movement, music, drama and spoken word Gitana will take you on a journey “between worlds.” Our past makes us who we are in the present so what must we be doing now? As diverse Americans, what do we want to become together? How does democracy depend on our ability to connect with each other in authentic ways?
