strengthens public art-making practices

In this episode, we talk with artist Jen Berger and composer Matt LaRocca about their artistic process to bring people together during such divisive and troubled times.
This performance piece involves dancers, musicians, and visual artists. The audience is encouraged to participate in this collective message of peace and coming together.
The piece serves to bring the Burlington community together after a long period of isolation due to COVID-19. It was outside and socially distanced, but succeeded in reuniting people after such a long time apart.
