UNDER THE CANOPY by Selmadanse
Conceived and Directed by Joanie Block
Inspired by Sandy Block (July 29,1949 - November 21, 2021)

Can hope endure in the wake of grief?
Personal stories of loss from members of the Boston Dance Community remind us that it can. Original film, sound score, prose and dance portray seven personal stories, revealing their place among all of our stories Under the Canopy.
