A memory, revisited. Weaving together dance and live music, In Defense of Gravity grapples with the persistence of memory and tragedies that cannot be unseen. Gritty and poignant, the poetry of Jimmy Cvetic guides this journey into and out of darkness, reminding us how difficult it is to forget and the reason to remember. Musical collaborators, Anqwenique Wingfield and Ben Opie will perform both original music and reimagined jazz classics, along with pianist, Ben Brosche and percussionist, Jeff Berman. "As for the broken pieces that you have gathered, keep them, they belong to you." — Jimmy Cvetic Thursday, November
