Entrance on Edgemont Rd.
A new work by composer and musician Daniel Blake featuring Westchester Ballet Company.
Choreography by Tomiko Magario.
Creative Alliance Project is pleased to present Got My Wings, a ballet inspired by the writings of Jarvis Jay Masters, an innocent man on death row for 32 years for a crime he did not commit. The project is a response piece in support of prison reform advocacy, with a focus on how creative art, education and spiritual mentorship can make a pivotal difference in the lives of incarcerated people.
The piece is set to an original score, written and performed by composer and musician Daniel Blake, with choreography by Tomiko Magario, and featuring an ensemble from Westchester Ballet Company. Following each performance, a panel of formerly incarcerated men and women will share their experiences and reflect on living and coping while in prison.
