Weis Center Stream: THIS IS ME: Letters From the Front Lines created by DIAVOLO (Contemporary Dance Film) Virtual Performance

February 24 - March 2

Free

There will be a pre-performance panel discussion with Artistic Director, Jacques Heim and community members.

35 minute performance.

DIAVOLO is a creative movement production company that pushes the envelope of innovation by creating unique live & cinematic experiences. Using custom-made architectural structures, DIAVOLO intersects storytelling, movement and architecture with an inventive and visceral approach.

The 2020 premiere of THIS IS ME: Letters From the Front Lines is a dance film exploring how the current climate of isolation has encouraged us to look within ourselves. We follow the paths of military veterans and first responders as they share what it means to be a true warrior – to be on the front lines – and fight the invisible enemy that all humanity is currently battling. At a time when most have been asked to halt and withdraw, others, like soldiers, are charging forward. THIS IS ME: Letters From the Front Lines captures the resilience, determination and hope of the human spirit. It is dedicated to all the veterans for their service, commitment and sacrifice and to all of our COVID-19 first responders for their dedication, selflessness, and resilience.

Free, but tickets are required.
