Grásta: Grace in Uncertainty

What does the performer lose when there is no audience? 

Longtime collaborators Dana Lyn and Kyle Sanna create a video journal that examines notions of connection and disconnect inspired by today's climate of universal uncertainty. Blending spoken word with original music and movement, each explores their current limbo with the suspension of their art practices due to the pandemic, and learn how to navigate an increasingly unpredictable future.
