2024-2025 Season

Breaking free of our constraints

The 2024-2025 season is an invitation to break out: not just from our homes, but also from the structures that restrain us. When a poem stops time, when a story reaches out to us, when the mind wanders and imagination joins the heart with wild abandon. When, for just a short moment, however fleeting, furtive and insufficient, there is movement, we break out. Together.
