About the show "Parables"
--click here to see pictures from the show!--
"Parables" is Freedom Dance Company's debut full-length performance--their first complete show since beginning their work in 2015. Inspired by ancient translated texts from the New Testament portion of the Bible, this show artistically zooms in on six parables of Jesus in an exquisite and moving way.
Chosen at random out of over 30 parables, the six stories told during this evening weave an overarching narrative of redemption and hope for the viewer, covering a wide variety of universal human themes.
What audience members are saying about "Parables"...
