The production’s first act highlights the work of emerging dance companies including the Groovaloos, Jabbawockies, and Creative Planet. The show’s second half features the premiere of Culture Shock Los Angeles’ original composition, _The Color of We. _Inspired by the real lives of seven L.A. locals living with HIV, the 45-minute piece uses music, spoken word, and dance to bring their stories to the stage. The work explores the joys and challenges of their emotional journeys, and emphasizes the ultimate nondiscriminatory nature of HIV and AIDS.
_The Color of We _represents a true collaboration of local artists. The piece includes the music, spoken word, and choreography of talented contributors like DJ Enerjon, Culture Shock San Diego, and the San Pedro City Ballet. It is hoped that the evening’s performance will enlighten audiences to the issues facing those affected by HIV/AIDS, and empower viewers to make a positive difference in their communities.
