Over the past two years, as we adapted to performing in a pandemic, we connected virtually with former GBC creatives around North America. We are continuing those connections into this season by presenting both virtual and live performances. For more details about the venues, performance and audience experience, you can view this document. View the press release here. If you are representing a school and are interested in the performance and educational workshop around PAUSE... more details are available here.
