Friday April 5, 7PM T.W. Wood Art Gallery 46 Barre St. Hearing Through the Heart: An Evening of Poetry and Dance Poets Rosa Castellano and George Longenecker; Dancers Alana Rancourt Phinney and Mireya Guerra Through narratives of racial injustice, social inequality and equity, the poets and dancers hope that the heart-opening nature of poetry and dance will provide a bridge to compassion so that we can see glimpses of ourselves in the stories of others. When we listen together and allow ourselves to be moved together, something passes between us and leaves a mark.
