WE vs C: Stories of Triumph Over Breast Cancer

  • Roxey Ballet Studios 243 North Union Street Lambertville, NJ, 08530 United States (map)

We vs. C: Personal Stories of Triumph Over Breast Cancer is a groundbreaking dance, music, art and theater presentation by Roxey Company. The program celebrates the lives of 22 breast cancer survivors created through interviews with the women, it is a song-cycle/ballet conceived and created by Mark Roxey with original music by songwriting team Robert Maggio (music) and Matthew Hardy (lyrics). Eleven survivors will share the stage with the professional dancers during the June performances. "This production celebrates the lives of 22 women, but over 300,000 women each year receive a cancer diagnosis. It's universal to all of us. It's a performance that reaches out to everyone", Mark Roxey says. "The art of dance is at its best when you are able to create meaning, when you can do something much greater than a single word 'dance'.

Tickets: $20 - $54
