For We Were Loved First
Created, Choreographed, & Performed by MacKenzie Harrison & Aimee Kulp

While self-love, romantic love, and family love all have moments of joy, we are imperfect— so our love is imperfect, and the joy that we feel when relying on them passes. It is only when God penetrates our hearts that our love can be a truly beautiful and holy thing. And while we would love for that to be the end of the story, even after we start to experience agape love, we still battle the sin on this earth. Human love goes up and down even when we are held in the arms of the Father, but one day we will know love that is perfectly and completely whole. 

*Please note that this performance contains mature content (depression, references to suicide) and may not be suitable for all audiences. Viewer discretion is advised.*

Estimated runtime: 1 hour

The Order of Things will be presented as scheduled
The Order of Things
Conceived by Annelise K. Wardwell
Created & Performed by Annelise K. Wardwell & Jim Hy

Relationships present unique challenges, and they often face strain when the individuals involved lack communication and find themselves on different wavelengths. Familial relationships are no exception to this, as they often make up one of the most fundamental cornerstones of the human experience.

What happens when such a relationship is faced with perhaps the greatest trial imaginable? Will it crumble under the pressure, or will it grow even stronger under the weight of adversity?

*Please note that this performance contains mature language and content, and may not be suitable for all audiences. Viewer discretion is advised.*

Estimated runtime: 45 minutes
