What Was & Will Be


Event Description:

Presented by JCC Indianapolis, Dance Kaleidoscope, Indiana Writers Center, Indianapolis Jewish Community Relations Council, Indianapolis Public Library, Christel House Academy, Christel House Academy South, and Indianapolis Power and Light. 

As individuals and a society, we are forging a new COVID-19 reality. Dance Kaleidoscope dancers will showcase the experiences of Hoosiers, transforming their written reflections about COVID-19 into a pre-recorded dance performance. These writings and others were selected by the Indiana Writers Center to appear in an online anthology, What Was and What Will Be: Life in the Time of Covid-19. Viewers will be invited to add their stories to the anthology after the DK performance.

This is a virtual event that will be offered by video-on-demand through November 22 and can be watched here.
