The Trifecta Youth Companies of Chicago, IL is honored to present "The Power of Beauty."
There is an unspoken dichotomy in our society. While we are surrounded by an overwhelming amount of beauty—from
which one can draw inspiration and experience an emotional shift in perspective—oftentimes this beauty is overshadowed by destruction, social injustice, and the misuse of power. A dark shadow is cast over the beauty.
The idea that beauty can be powerful is an untapped resource. When we see social injustice, we can combat it with the beauty by which we are surrounded.
The Trifecta Youth Company chooses to fight back with the beauty of movement. They hope to inspire their audiences to take action and fight to establish an equilibriums in their worlds and platforms for more individuals to harness their own inner powers. The ripple effect will create a wave of compassion that will fill our communities with love and knowledge.
"We choose to dance. We choose to light our corner of the world."
—Krissie Odegard Geye, Artistic director/choreographer at Trifecta Youth Company
