CRACKS OF LIGHT at Gibney Dance
CRACKS OF LIGHT
CO-PRESENTED BY SANCTUARY FOR FAMILIES
OCT 12 – 13 AT 8:00 PM
GIBNEY 280 BROADWAY
$15 – $20
Co-presented by Gibney Community Action’s first partner, Sanctuary for Families, Cracks of Light is part of Gibney’s annual observance of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. In this series of performance works created during the journey from struggle to survival, Gibney bears witness to survivors of intimate partner and gender-based violence. By bringing forward stories once held in silence, this series continues to give voice to the power of art and community.
This year, Cracks of Light will feature a new work created by a group of Survivor Leaders from Sanctuary for Families and facilitated by our Senior Company Director Amy Miller. This moving performance draws upon the Survivor Leaders’ stories of rebuilding their lives as a way to raise awareness of intimate partner violence. The program will also present performances by Nana Chinara and Truthworker Theatre Company, a hip-hop theatre company founded and directed by Samara Gaev, for high school and college-aged youth. Truthworker raises awareness and catalyzes action for racial, gender, and economic justice. Additional performers to be announced.
Don’t miss Move Beyond Violence, a one-night-only benefit performance kicking off the Cracks of Light series on October 11 at 6:30 pm.
