"Tenderness Selections” is a blend of monologues, storytelling, movement, scenes, and includes five languages. Created by First Generation Ensemble, “Tenderness” underscores the dehumanization at the core of all violence, and contrasts it with the eternal power of human tenderness and connection. Inspired by ensemble members’ personal experiences of human-rights abuse in war in the Darfur region of Sudan, Guinea, West Africa, and the school-to-prison pipeline system and mass incarceration in the US, tenderness reaches beyond conflict and racism to find pathways for human connection. This performance will be followed by a Q& A with the ensemble cast.
6pm: Community Meal. Donations Appreciated.
7pm: Moonlight and Morning Star are known for their rich harmonies and intimate performance style. Their multi-cultural collaborations include original songs, spoken word, and arrangements of traditional music of the African American and Jewish traditions. Moonlight and Morning Star work devotedly in the Pioneer Valley to promote social justice, multicultural awareness and empowerment for young people.
8pm: Tang Sauce and DJ Stealth provide high energy, danceable, captivating hip hop music, that will make you feel charged up. Tang Sauce delivers the complex, clever rhyme schemes; at the same time playing jazz inspired trumpet, while DJ Stealth brings electronic sonic smoothness.
