Ballet 5:8 presents
Featuring Butterfly, Brothers & Sisters, and Meditations
From the whispers of the past we hear a resound that cannot be silenced. Every human - beautiful or plain, desirable or marginalized - is precious and created with purpose. Join Ballet 5:8 for an evening of one-act ballets featuring Julianna Rubio Slager’s Butterfly, in memory of the children of WWII Terezin and their poems and artwork. Also included: Slager’s popular work Meditations, on light and perspective, inspired by C.S. Lewis’ essay Meditations in a Toolshed, and Slager’s playful Brothers & Sisters, exploring the beauty and contrast of men and women.
