It began with a poem.
The Dead are waiting on the Incline. Sometimes they hold one Hand up to the Light as if they were alive and they draw it back into their usual Darkness which blinds us.
When reconstructing the dance this fall the third section was recreated with the plight of the Syrians in all of our minds. More than 850,000 have crossed the Mediterranean and Aegean Oceans this year fleeing war, persecution and violence. The choice to embark on such dangerous journeys seems the only way to give their children a chance for survival and safety. The suffering caused by Diaspora is our human heritage. All races and cultures have been affected within our human history on earth.
