Voices Not Forgotten
Long before the resources and opportunities were present, Michelle Gibson, Ashé's dance artist-in-residence, was inspired by the belief in the importance of igniting elders' vitality through movement. From this belief arose two performance works: Voices Not Forgotten and Voices Not Forgotten: Firsts. Both of these works derive from the notion that it is critical to preserve the vitality of human beings in their later years. Movement is an essential ingredient to preserving this vitality, especially for those who might have limited mobility.
This work is with the Central City EOC Senior Citizens Center and is led by artist Karel Sloane-Boekbinder.
