THE ROAD

APRIL 9 at 2:00 PM

APRIL 9 at 4:00 PM

The Mark O'Donnell Theater at the Actors Fund Arts Center

160 Schermerhorn St, Brooklyn, NY 11201

Spark Movement Collective presents The Road, an original dance performance for all ages inspired by Cleo Wade's book What the Road Said, illustrated by Lucie de Moyencourt. This show takes the whole family on a journey as it follows one child as they work through life’s challenging questions and moments. The audience will have a chance to interact and share what they think it means to be brave while helping to create movements for the characters at the end. The Road helps us all see how we can walk our own paths and bring those around us together with love, peace, and patience. 

The Road 
Choreography: Michelle Thomson Ulerich
Cast: Spark Movement Collective

Estimated run time is 40 minutes without intermission. The Road will include narration in English and American Sign Language.

While we continue to navigate the challenges of the global pandemic and its ripple effects in the art world, Spark Movement Collective is proud to once again self-produce live performances. Masks will be required at all times, and proof of vaccination will be required for everyone 5 years old and up. COVID protocol is subject to change in accordance with local health and safety guidelines. Please email info@sparkmovementcollective.org with any questions. Thank you for helping make this event as safe as possible.
