This open discussion will be an opportunity to meet with the director and student dancers of the FLOCK Dance Troupe, who will be performing "WIRED" on the Green the following evening. Delve into WIRED's storyline and the themes of consumption, the media, the Occupy Movement, and our place as human beings in the natural order of life on earth, and explore how to "get the message out" through the arts.

WIRED’s storyline traces the influence of money in our society through the entangling of corporations, politics and the judicial system. With a blend of compassion, outrage and humor, we’ll dance of consumption, the media, the Occupy Movement, and our place as human beings in the natural order of life on earth.

FLOCK recognizes that community dance and ritual theater are powerful in ways that go beyond the price of an admission ticket: strengthening relationships, deepening our sense of place, and building community through a performance of shared intention.
