The works of art that will be studied during the International Educator Workshop at the Farnsworth from July 23 - 27, 2012:
Leap of Faith is a dance theater production that seeks to awaken the imagination and the boundlessness of the human experience. Inspired by a vision of bringing to life the words of Rumi and other timeless poets, Kristi Williamson directs this dynamic performance that combines visual art, dance and live music. Artist Kathryn Oliver provides a visual reflection of the poetry, while dancers Shana Bloomstein, Annie Laurita, and musicians Wayne Delano, Max McFarland and Judy Nielson bring the work to life.
There will be a public performance of Leap of Faith on Wednesday, July 25, at 10 a.m. at The Strand Theatre in Rockland. More information is available here.
