We’re thrilled about the upcoming performance of Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble. They will be performing ComePassion, a blend of generations and genres of dance in a hybrid concert of five works -- two of which are premiering for the first time ever in Denver on May 8, and in Oklahoma City on May 10. Along with these performances, you will also have the opportunity to see the very first sneak peek of The Four Journeys, a new work that will premiere in September.
