Ballet 5:8 and the Wheaton College Artist Series present

The Space in Between

Featuring The Space in Between, Of Splendors and Horrors, and Meditations

In a grey town where the rain falls continuously stands a man at a bus stop, on the brink of heaven and hell. This dreamlike place is the setting for Ballet 5:8 Artistic Director Julianna Rubio Slager’s The Space in Between, called “exceptionally well done” by Lauren Warnecke of See Chicago Dance. The one-act ballet inspired by C. S. Lewis’ novel The Great Divorce explores the nature of eternity and the joy found on its shores. Also included: Slager’s popular work Meditations, on light and perspective, based on C.S. Lewis’ essay Meditations in a Toolshed, and Slager’s Of Splendors and Horrors, inspired by C.S. Lewis’ book The Weight of Glory.
