I'm delighted to be joining fellow performers Andy Morgan, Joe Cabral, and Joshua Bruneau in presenting “Le Bal des Revenants” (the Spirit Ball) at the Stanley-Whitman House museum in Farmington, Connecticut on Friday and Saturday, October 29th & 30th and Friday and Saturday, November 5th and 6th, 2021.
It is a show about "reconnecting" which will let audience members reconnect to the past, to the present and to the future.
Many in our communities were isolated from friends, from family and from colleagues during the pandemic. Now that restrictions are lifting we are all adjusting to the new ways in which we will resume our daily lives.
This show is designed to let the audience members celebrate the what lies ahead - a returning to our world - a new world that has changed in so many ways. Audience members will experience three miniature performance pieces set in different rooms of the Stanley Whitman House.
These performances are designed to help people re-capture a sense of mystery and wonder that we can experience. I felt the Stanley Whitman House was the perfect place for a celebration of reconnecting after the pandemic.
Over the years of its existence, it has been many things to many people: a home, a refuge, a place to learn about the past and present as well as a place where through art and music people can experience a sense of community.
It is my wish that those who attend Le Bal des Revenants leave with a renewed sense of wonder feeling of connection. I look forward to seeing you there!
