Benefit concert for Angels and Wings artist in communities multi-media dance peice.
The Athens community is invited to participate in the creation of a dance theatre piece investigating close to death experiences. “Close to death” is meant to be interpreted according to the subject’s point of view. For example: Has someone you love had cancer? Has your lifetime pet passed away? Have you been to war? Have you been with someone as they died? Anyone seeking to express their creative voice or share their story is welcome to participate. Experience is not necessary.
“Angels and Wings” is presented in partnership with ARTS/West, Athens Friends Meeting and the Athens community. Funding by Athens Foundation, and the Ohio Arts Council.
About Missy Whaley: Since 1989 when Missy Whaley started her dance company, MinDCollision, her intention has been to bring art and the artistic process directly to communities. She has created several solos, duets, and trios, and her participants are often a blend of professionals and non-trained community members. Melissa’s work explores the use of dance, words, music and film to present a rich multi-layering of images and experiences that capture the diversity and complexity of the human spirit.
