Collaborative performance by Thomas Dance Project, Gregory Walker and the Altius String Quartet + Rich L’or Nachrist + David Hinojosa
Beyond Borders is a show that will represent the life of a group of people celebrating together, who soon realize that the society that they live in is no longer a place of peace and happiness. Due to this, they decide to leave their home land and cross the sea to find refuge in a greater place. Their struggles, hopes, and yearning for a better life will be portrayed throughout this performance. Beyond Borders not only represents this fictional story, but immigrants throughout the world attempting to cross borders.
In addition to the Thomas Dance Project, this show will also feature live music by the Altius String Quartet, Rich L’or Nachrist and percussionist David Hinojosa. This live tableau of migrants making their way across Europe will be accompanied by the original compositions of Greg Walker.
The collaborative partners are thankful to the University of Colorado "College of Arts & Media" and Afrosocial Colorado for supporting this project.
