Community Choreography Projects will debut its most provocative choreography piece to date: Talking to God, a movement theater presentation directed by Barrie Barton. Thirteen women, aged 30 to 70 years old, will perform stories, movement, poetry, with visual art and music as an artistic answer to the question: Do we connect with God, Spirit or the Divine, and how do we connect?
“From various religious backgrounds, the cast members share humorous and poignant stories of their religious upbringing and lifetime explorations of the divine and their connections to it,” says Barton. “It’s ambitious in concept but the results will surprise you. It’s deeply humbling.”
Barton has served as Artistic Director of Community Choreography Projects since its inception in 2005. She has 30 years’ experience teaching, dancing, directing and choreographing work with the main goal of deepening every day conversations for both cast participants as well as audience members.
Joining the Talking to God cast is poet and writer Donna Glee Williams, who will perform one of her poems. Visual artist Tebbe Davis, Jan Harrison and Maureen Simon will be featured in a multimedia portion of the show.
Talking to God premieres Sunday, November 22 at Jubilee! Community. Tickets are available at the door for $10. The performance begins at 5:30 pm.
