World Premiere of "Strings Attached"

Voices Carry, Inc. will present the World Premiere of Strings Attached, a multidisciplinary project, involving contemporary dance, abstract puppetry, an original score, and performance art, for two weekends opening on Thursday, October 6, 2016 at The Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles in Downtown LA.

The work, which has been in development for three years, is a window into the human capacity to love, with a focus on the universal feelings of grief, forgiveness, devotion, entrapment, and joy. Voices Carry, a nonprofit corporation guided by Artistic Director Madeline Leavitt, is dedicated to breaking down cultural barriers and embracing diversity through dance, theatre, and performance art.

“The human soul is strong, yet fragile, and in order to get through grief or to a place of forgiveness, there are always strings attached,” says Leavitt about the new work. “To survive life’s challenges, we have to be resilient and resourceful. These are the moments that connect us to one another.”


Tickets, available online here as well as at the door, are $30 for general admission and $15 for students/seniors (60+)/Dance Resource Center members. Ticketing phone number is 310-710-7613.
