SORRY I MISSED YOUR SHOW: STEFANIE BATTEN BLAND
DEC 2, 6:30 - 8:00 PM EDT
Look Who's Coming To Dinner
Inspired by the 1967 Stanley Kramer film starring Sydney Poitier, Katherine Hepburn, and Spencer Tracy, the work pays tribute to those who paved the way toward acceptance in love and life. Set around a transformative dinner setting, dance-theatre artists excavate interlaced universal traumas through imagery and ritual as they seek a seat at the table.
