Lynn Lane, Catalina Molnari and Toni Leago Valle present Regifting Lions
Lynn Lane, Catalina Molnari and Toni Leago Valle bring to life through movement and visual art the essence of survivors. Regifting Lions, set to an original music score by George Heathco, asks the questions, "Why do some people crumple under adversity and others are able to stand up and move forward? Why do some make it to the other side... and how do they stay there?"
By giving a personal face to survivorship, Regifting Lions sheds light on the issue of societal acceptance of the survivor. Often viewed as raw and uncomfortable, survivors of cancer, addiction and other traumas learn to hide their discomfort for the benefit of others. Regifting Lions explores the people left behind in the wake of trauma - these unique people's desire to live, unearth and heal traumatic events, and the ability to reshape their lives.
