The completed full-length multi-media performance piece will premiere in spring 2016 and tour Nationally and Internationally beginning fall 2016. 

"Diverge" is based on our relationship to each other and to nature in a digital age. Utilizing multiple artistic forms (dance, music and visual art) the work will explore the walls we build that separate us from each other and will ask us to consider how we can maintain empathy and personal connection in a time that seems to encourage disconnection and multi-tasking. All proceeds from this event will be directed towards the development of this new and innovative performance piece.
