Compass | Urbana

  • Urbana High School 1002 South Race Street Urbana, IL, 61801 United States (map)

Compass is a collection of one-act ballets on navigating cultural tension with compassion. Compass stretches across time and space to explore some of the most pressing topics in our country and in our cities today. At times witty and satirical, and at times deeply emotional, the program is full of athleticism, power and poetry.

“consistently imaginative”
