The Wound In the Water: Journey toward a Shared Song is an innovative inter-arts program inspired by the profound choral cantata by Kim André Arnesen and Euan Tait. The program evokes the brokenness of humanity and imagines a pilgrimage toward hope and healing that is possible when compassion is cultivated in our world. The creative team, lead by Dr. Ray Landis, took on the significant challenge of interweaving luscious choral music, West African drumming and dance, textile art, and monologues inspired by stories of injustice and hope. Through this multidimensional experience, the plight of refugees and exiles was illuminated as the audience embarked on a poignant aural and visual journey. The concert took place at First Congregational Church of Webster Groves on Sunday, April 29, 2018 at 4:00 p.m.
