Breaking Silence

Saturday May 12th, 2018

2:00pm Matinee and 7:30pm Evening

at Bellingham High School

Tickets are available at Brown Paper Tickets

Under the inspiring direction of Dustin Willetts, our 120 voice Kulshan Chorus is excited to present not one but two powerhouse performances of BREAKING SILENCE. While Kulshan Chorus is no stranger to speaking out for social justice, this concert is a first.  We have joined forces with the incredible minds of Pam Kuntz (Kuntz and Company) and Keefe Healy to present an artistic representation of the underlying ground of the #MeToo movement.  

 

Using the combined artistic pillars of music, dance, and theater - our hero, Miriam, shares her story, the lessons she has learned, and calls upon you, the audience, to rise up. Her story weaves through songs from some of the biggest names in choral composition -Jake Runestad, Moira Smiley and Andrea Ramsey along with insightful pieces from Rag'n'Bone Man and MILCK.  Using choreography, spoken word, and stage design all created for this event, Kulshan Chorus proudly presents a collection of 21st century choral pieces that will evoke empathy, resilience, and clarity between right and wrong.
