Award-winning choreographers Janice Garrett and Charles Moulton return to YBCA Theater with a stellar cast of 23 dancers to present “Stabat Mater and Mad Brass” — an evening of two world premieres celebrating the resilience and joy of the human spirit. Together, these new works traverse a vivid visual, musical and theatrical landscape of both the sacred and profane, evoking a journey of transformation and exploring the capacity of the heart to meet adversity with love and grace. In a world increasingly filled with messages of fear, alienation, and despair, Garrett and Moulton’s work manifests images of light and hope. Since 2002, the company’s signature exuberance, lush physicality, and deep soulfulness have delighted, moved and inspired Bay Area audiences.
