Service Description

NYC-based Ballaro Dance presents Embedded Memories, an illuminated installation rooted in honoring personal histories through the lens of scars and their images which live permanently on, and inside of, our bodies. Investigating the memories and stories these imprints hold, we can learn from one another and promote community healing. Inspired first by Kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery while highlighting the areas of breakage, golden accents illuminate these stories through numerous lighted lanterns in the installation ranging in size from 6" - 36" and inventive light pieces affixed to the dancers’ bodies. Deeper connections to Japanese philosophy and the process of healing have been explored through additional research and experiences in Reiki and Butoh. The dance piece continues to grow with each touring performance of the work through the Community Imprints contributions of the audience's personal memories and stories. The immersive evening of creativity, collaboration, and community begins with a site-specific performance by local community performers. Following the illuminated dance performance of Embedded Memories by Ballaro Dance, audience members will be invited to SHARE with the Company dancers and have an opportunity to leave their own Community Imprints behind. (Stay tuned for details on how YOU can get involved in the community performance, if interested.) Wine is not included in the ticket and can be purchased at the vineyard after our staff checks your ID. CANCELLATION POLICY Ticket is non refundable.
