The program will feature highlights from Dreams, Rooms, From the Diaries of Franz Kafka, Opus 65, Magritte, Magritte and more, performed by highly skilled artists dedicated to the preservation of Sokolow’s technique of voice, theater, and dance. Teenage students from Ellen Robbins’ school will also perform.
