The most important thing to know about Sophia is her stamina or her will, or perhaps her certainty of the way which things should be… This multi-media work reflects on the story of guest choreographer Daniel Burkholder's 97 year-old grandmother, Sophia Saren. In side-by-side, simultaneous performance spaces, filmed interviews about Sophia's childhood, marriage and life journey are interwoven with athletic dancing, monologues, diverse music and audience interactions. Guests move from one performance space to the next, absorbing details and abstractions of Sophia's memories— and are invited to consider how their own memories live on to create the story of their lives. 

The performance runs:

Fridays, March 3 & 10, 2017 at 7:30 p.m.
Saturdays, March 4 & 11, 2017 at 7:30 p.m.
Sundays, March 5 & 12, 2017 at 7:30 p.m.
