Through innovative choreography, aerial work and theater, VF Dance Theater is excited to show its new work about how memories—even the hard ones—can keep the ones we love alive.
Based on a true story, the show raises awareness for Breast cancer using the arts. However it is not about Death, but It’s about how a strong spirit can never really be extinguished. It’s about a family coping, healing, and moving forward. In conjunction with a book that was written with the show “Balou the Comforter” the company hopes to offer HOPE and healing to those battling with cancer and their loved ones.
General Admission: $25
