How are we all connected? Is it by our family histories, the stories of personal struggles our parents and grandparents have passed down to us?  Or going even further back, the journeys our ancestors took to get to wherever our 'here' is now.  Experience this DRAMATIC Performing Arts Presentation of HOW WE ARE CONNECTED and join our cast for a discussion, as you yourself answer these questions.

Our Director facilitated a two month development process, working with writers and actors to explore facts, fantasies, dreams and possibilities about their ancestral heritage.  The stories that emerged from these workshops, and later the results of the DNA tests and our collective conversations about them, highlight HOW WE ARE CONNECTED.
