"Before Body Meets Earth blends the formal classical recital with theatrical storytelling to explore ideas of value as seen through the experiences of two characters - portrayed by Chelsea Fingal DeSouza and CodyRay Caho. Through song and performance art we see the conflict of each character in relation to each other and their physical environments. This recital embodies two people’s struggle to connect and their search for the empathy needed to do so. Music and poetry spanning over 2600 years (Sappho - Dicky Dutton) of human experience work to highlight humanity's vital connections, which affirm our innate value both in and outside of our contributions as living creators. We are alive BEFORE BODY MEETS EARTH!”
