In the Program

From the whispers of the past we hear a resound that cannot be silenced. Every human, male or female, beautiful or plain, desirable or marginalized, born of privilege or born of poverty, each one is precious and created with purpose. The remnants of art from the nearly forgotten children of Terezin beckon each of us to see the future with clear eyes that recognize and protect the deepest magic there is - the chaos and wonder that is the gift of life.

Brothers & Sisters

There is something innately beautiful about men and women. Contrast and subtlety. Difference and similarity. Overlap and distinction. The Creator must have moved with delight as he drew his children with contrasting and complementary strokes. Men and women. Brothers and sisters. A family both fully unique and yet strikingly similar.

Join the Conversation
Following each performance, audience members are invited to attend a TalkBack panel discussion. During this informal Q&A, you'll have the opportunity to talk with Ballet 5:8 Artistic Director Julianna Rubio Slager and Artists of the Company about your experience during the performance. What did you see? What did the performance make you feel or think? What questions do you have? All comments and questions are welcome.
