About the Work
This performance is dedicated to the healthcare workers of the world and was put together during the Safer at Home order imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. To accomplish this, each of the performers danced from their homes. Artistic Director Benjmain Millepied combined the variations together in the end.
