@ Hanesbrands Theater
>> Helen Simoneau Danse: 7th Company Season
Advice: Do not miss this FINAL performance. Three visually striking works that explore human connection, interaction, and conversations across disciplines. This evening of dance features live music by MUST BE THE HOLY GHOST, and visual art projectionist, Weapons of Mass Projection. I had the pleasure of attending last night and cannot get it out of my head. Writer Lynn Felder called it an “an intoxicating banquet for the the senses” and I couldn’t agree more. Read her full review here. Performance details.
