The Story of Ruth to be presented in Perfect Harmony by
Dimensional Dance and Voce
Saturday, June 24, 6:15-6:45 PM Pre-performance talk
7 -8 PM Performance
St. Alban’s Episcopal Church, 197 Bushy Hill Road, Simsbury, CT
For one night only, for the first time ever, The Story of Ruth will be performed through a unique artistic collaboration at St. Alban’s Episcopal Church in Simsbury on Saturday, June 24. Together, New England-based chamber choir Voce and Dimensional Dance, from Greater Hartford, will tell the timeless story, steeped in the traditional principles of love, perseverance, acceptance, and grace. To complement the production, the large backdrop was specially designed to evoke the time and setting of Hebrew Scripture. The platform stage was custom-built to accommodate all the artists.
Before the performance, there will be a discussion about the significance and contextual background of the story from both the Jewish and Christian perspectives. The discussion will be led by The Reverend Rebekah Hatch, Rector at St. Alban’s Episcopal Church, and Rabbi Rebekah Goldman, Rabbi at Farmington Valley Jewish Congregation, Emek Shalom in Simsbury.
Audiences can expect an immersive experience where the senses come into play. Every dance and vocal artist will bring their skills and commitment to the art to create a harmonious whole. Director Singleton believes that “Through harmony, our differences can be used to make music more beautiful and inclusive than anything we can do on our own.”
