“Soulful femininity” is how the L.A. Times describes Healing Blue, a production “inspired by the stories of seven women and their fight against breast cancer,” playing at Lineage Performing Arts Center on October 20th.
The proceeds from Healing Blue will benefit The Foundation for Living Beauty, empowering “women to reduce their cancer risk and increase their self-esteem, physical wellness, and emotional stability after coping with the taxing effects of cancer and chemotherapy.”
It is the belief of The Foundation for Living Beauty that empathy, compassion, and sensitivity to the human condition are what first, above all else, allows us to truly and selflessly help others.(LivingBeauty.org)
According to Pasadena Now, “the dance is based on a photographic essay taken by Annie Wells as she battled breast cancer while her sister Betsy was simultaneously losing her fight against ovarian cancer.” (Laura Monteros/Pasadena Now)
NewWest.net wrote about Healing Blue all the way back in 2006, reporting that “this powerful performance brings together original music, videotaped interviews, and breath-taking contemporary dance,” the message being “one of celebration and hope.”
Since Hillary Thomas founded Lineage Dance in 1999, the company has performed over 300 times and raised nearly $200,000 for charitable, educational, and non-profit organizations.
