Come and see the Ensemble move through the library spaces exploring  open and closed spaces, creating walls and breaking them down, traveling suitcases as their signature as they create a platform for reflection on some of today’s most pressing issues.

Full run-through rehearsals will happen from 10-11 am on June 28; August 21, and September 20. Working rehearsals will be on August 16, August 28, September 13, and September 27 from 9:30-12 noon. All rehearsals are free and the public is invited. The Hartford Public Library Main Street branch is handicapped accessible, with parking available in the parking ramp behind the building.

And we all breathed in the spoken and sung words as part of the magic of movement. Read more
