Ten Thousand Prayers - Telling Refugees' Stories
Thu, 22 December 2016, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM CST
TEN THOUSAND PRAYERS
Healing hands hold hope
in their tender touch, hidden
by life’s crashing waves.
Refugees are often silenced, portrayed as faceless, helpless people without a home. But who are they really? Ten Thousand Prayers is a series of stories that seeks to break down our misconceptions - the barriers between the faces we see on the news, and those we experience in real life.
In an original creation told through acrobatic storytelling, spoken word and live music, Momentum Aerial & Acrobatic Troupe presents a spectacle that will leave you breathless. Be inspired by the courage of real people who dared leave behind all they’d ever known, to run towards hope against all odds.
