In the Presence of Absence

Friday, November 10, 2023 8:00 PM - Sunday, November 12, 2023 3:00 PM (PST)


The pandemic resulted in us experiencing the same global event, differently. Led by Artistic Director Deborah Slater and Cultural Curator Tammy Johnson, In the Presence of Absence explores absence “then”, absence “now”, and what we’re left with as we move forward. Through movement, words, images, sound, & objects, this multimedia performance retells some of the many stories of the last three years and what going forward feels like.
