All God’s Children is a ballet based on a poem by Sojourner Truth.
If God created all people, then He created every shade of skin color, which leaves little room for prejudice. The ballet approaches the issue of racial tension and diversity from a fresh perspective. We are observers of another time, another world and watch the development from primal Man to full-fledged culture. By reframing the issue in another world and starting from scratch, we can see ourselves more clearly. Whimsical, satirical and compellingly fresh, the ballet shows the development of culture and the beauty of what makes us distinct, without forgetting what binds us together.
