SOME ARE BRAVE is an innovative, multi-layered poetic chronicle. It introduces iconic characters and historic events in a flurry of emotional and psychological rhythms. Based on a 500-year chronology of struggles for global peace and equality, it interjects the unrecorded contributions of women throughout history. Using the metaphor and symbolic structural device of ‘weaving’, this project, BUT SOME ARE BRAVE whirls us through a visual poem like a spindle flying through layers of thread telling us something of the cultural and political histories of communities under attack. BUT SOME ARE BRAVE is a tribute to the old and earthly connections we have to those who have gone before us, as well as the determination to continue to dream and envision bravely.
