Double Bill Weekend - Elu Dance Company and Across The Board
Elu Dance Company
Using visceral dance vocabulary and imagery, Elu Dance Company’s evening-length work seeks to break through barriers of understanding as they explore the horrors of the ongoing refugee crisis. Caught is movement prose in search of light in this incomprehensible darkness.

Performed by Anne Howard, Catherine Anderson, Gabrielle Shipley, Autumn Traub, Joshua Brown, Mikaela Brown and Mackenzie Valley
Across The Board
Black Don't Crack
