Fara’s Dream (2018)

Fara’s Dream is a response to the refugee crisis in the Middle East that focuses on the experiences and hopes of Syrian Children.  To a score that includes music by Jody Redhage and Dan Deacon, the dancers bring to life real photos of children impacted by these events.  A struggle for survival, the burden of having to grow up too soon, and hope for the future is conveyed through the composition of the work.  Originally created in 2016, a revision in 2018 allowed the performers to continue to deepen their artistic experience by also focusing on the turmoil surrounding the American immigration policy.
