I raise my glass with deep gratitude, respect, and unwavering support to the heroic frontline healthcare workers and their families. Thank you for your service. I am honored to have had this privilege to hold space, to create and collaborate, and to guide this team in bringing the art pulse back to life after this long pause. I acknowledge my responsibility as an artist, and as a human, to speak what is unspoken about BIPOC and marginalized groups. Black Lives Matter. Indigenous Lives Matter. “If you want to improve the world, start by making people feel safer.” S. Porges. Enjoy the show!
