Inspired by the recent political climate, Bridges not Walls investigates the intrinsic human condition that identifies differences among people, causes us to fear one another--separating human from human-- instead of finding common ground; preventing us from sharing the human experience. Bridges offers audiences hope, exploring ways to overcome these natural instincts and to find compassion for one another as we move forward in a diverse society.

 

Ritmo Jondo, Doris Humphrey’s 1953 modern dance classic, performed to the tantalizing Spanish rhythms of Catalan born composer Carlos Surinach, will be introduced by Miami’s beloved Daniel Lewis.

 

For more information, call 305-975-8489. *Plus box office/online fees.
