Inspiring and igniting social change through movement arts.

Inspiring and igniting social change through the arts.

APRIL 5-14, 2019 | ODELL JOHNSON PERFORMING ARTS CENTER, LANEY COLLEGE

JEWELS brings together a cast of multigenerational performers in an enthralling combination of hip-hop, modern and aerial dance, theater, body percussion, spoken word, and song in a full-length original work that addresses the most pressing social issues of our time.

Under the artistic direction of Sarah Crowell and Rashidi Omari, JEWELS will take thousands of audience members on a journey through four levels of the underground, where young people from a not-to-distant future have been sent to find the mythical Book of Secrets that just may contain the answers to save a world in danger. At each level of the underground the youth are faced with seemingly insurmountable challenges that, when overcome, reveal the jewels that lie within each of them– jewels of the presence, power and creativity that are required for the world to survive. Will they return to the surface and participate in the shaping of a new world or will they perish in the deep recesses of the earth?

“Performing arts is my way of giving to the world, and I give to these kids everything I have. I think they see that and they know that and they wanna give the best they can as well.”
