BENEFITING: Collective Soles Arts Groupincorporated
“How can love bring me closer to you?” This question is the center of Collective Soles Dance Company’s upcoming performance, "With Love". With choreography by Artistic Director Alex Jones and newly appointed Resident Choreographer Sean McDonald, this dance work investigates love as it appears through empathy, compassion, and acceptance. "With Love", contains a combination of text and dance, audience interaction, and a personal tribute to Pulse Orlando performed by Alex Jones. With Love, will be presented at The Studio@620 March 24th and 25th at 7 pm. With Love, anything is possible.
Thoughts from the Director:
The concept for "With Love," has been hard on my mind for a while now. "How can love bring me closer to you?" and more specifically, "How can we, as a community, unify?" Recently, I experienced two life-changing events of unifying in the form of love; one was my wedding day and the other was the horrible events that occurred at Pulse. These two moments in life, four months apart from each other, illustrated how communities can unify during times of joy and tragedy; through acceptance, empathy, and compassion. Sharing love in these elements brought so many people together and my goal with this dance work is to illustrate those experiences through movement, helping to unite an even bigger community in the process. This is a big feat to undertake and I am so honored to have the support of my dancers and collaboration of Sean McDonald as we strive to answer the question, "How can love bring me closer to you?"
