More Info about the Upcoming Performances

We find the world in difficult times with people becoming increasingly polarized. Fujiwara is curious about how to embrace complexity and conflict with skill and grace, and how to stay open and kind in the midst of tumult.   


To be in harmony means to be in amity and peace. With Moving Parts, we are investigating these questions in three-part harmony, with a choir of moving singers.
