FALL SEASON: BOTH/AND
STEFANIE BATTEN BLAND & PETER CHU
nov 14 – 16, 2019
GDC’s Fall 2019 season explores what happens when seemingly opposing ideas are invited to co-exist in direct relationship to one another, rather than in isolation. In response to a pervasive ‘either/or’ mentality in our world, how can we move toward embracing a philosophy of ‘both/ and’— as people, as artists, and as citizens of the world?
Don’t miss a special Opening Night Celebration on November 14, including a VIP Pre-Show Reception, Performance Ticket, and After Party. Learn more →
