This performance hosts a cast of 20 Atlanta based professional dancers, spoken word artist, Abyss, and Musician/Composer, Chris Gravely, and highlights the work that was paused due to Covid-19 shutdowns. Watch to see the perseverance of the artists who waited and worked during the pandemic to have their pieces come to stage 12-months later.
