About the clearly show:
Twenty 20: Wildfires choke the air, police steal breath, and illness invades the lungs. Can your lizard-brain explain to the difference in between the nationwide risk of fascism and minimal-grade personalized conflict? Mine can’t. Twenty Twenty-Just one: We are coming back together, to mend by means of track and laughter, and dance-into-staying a much more stunning planet.

“Twenty Twenty / 20 Twenty-One” moves the grief up and out, to mourn the intersecting crises of 2020 and collectively consider the far better globe we want to steer towards (far from “back to normal”). This movement initiates from the lungs as the site of interconnectedness, the organ of grief, the goal of covid bacterial infections, the choke of wildfires, and the cry of social (in)justice: “I cannot breathe.” Lush visual design, and the nourishment of participatory ceremony and music returns us to our rightful selves, knitting alongside one another audience and performers as we dwell-into-being the additional beautiful environment our hearts know is attainable.
