Thank you all so much for your support.
This project is a result of a well-received series of events we offered last season. During the 2016-17 season, with the support from the National Endowment for the Arts, we hosted Blind Boys of Alabama, Josh Blue and Axis Dance Company. We were also thrilled to provide performances for children on the autism spectrum and their family members. The Paludan Sisters performed two musical shows and Chicago Children's Theatre presented "Red Kite, Brown Box."
"Red Kite, Brown Box" is a theatre piece that features Papa Nick, a loving father who has just moved his family into their new home. Trouble is, Papa Nick’s kids are having a hard time going to sleep, because they would rather explore and find treasures in the empty moving boxes still strewn around the house. They use a visual itinerary throughout the adventure to keep children feeling informed and secure to help alleviate stress and anxiety related to having a new experience.
See how this performance impacted the community in this great video.
Please share this with your friends and encourage them to help bring performances to the Lied Center that promote diversity and inclusion in a safe environment.
