In Residence | Letter by Lohani Dance Theatre
Escaped war but couldn’t escape faith.
They were forced to leave their home in order to breathe.
Wandering around in an estranged land where they are hanging by a thread of hope. Hoping to see a familiar face.
Hoping to not meet death without the last goodbye.
Hoping for someone to come to their rescue.
In such a melee, the future is unknown.
A letter is their last resolve.
So, they write to the world, to the people they love, to the people with power, to the people like us, to the people like you.
This is a journey of survivors who could withstand destruction, losses, and agonies but couldn’t survive the ignorance of society, and their depleting humanity.
produces and co-creates interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary work that is bold, experimental, and just.
Through In Residence, we work with contemporary, visionary artists to bring their ideas and concepts to life through conversations, space for rehearsals and workshops, along with presenting long runs of their work.
