ÃBallet has always been my safe home, no matter what was happening in the rest of my life or the rest of the world. It is my daily meditation and a reminder of who I am. I wanted to share that sense of peace through this project. When our country finally started looking at the truth of racial injustice, I felt it was imperative to include echos in my current work. New Earth Rising speaks to a generation that is rising and connecting. Many thanks to Tyshawn Sorey for sharing his music.Ã by Marika Brussel with Jenna Marie and Calvin Thomas, Performing Arts, USA / San Francisco, CA, Day 55 / September 7, 2020.
