2021/2022
Performance Season

Collide’s 8th performance season focuses on the power of human connection, and these stories could not be more relevant in our society today. The Covid-19 pandemic left many of us yearning for deeper human connection as an antidote to loss, loneliness, and social isolation. Meanwhile, our country is struggling with cultural and racial divides and looking for ways that we can listen and connect with each other. Storytelling, art, and engaging in communal experiences are vital to ourselves and neighbors as we re-emerge and come together.
