Abraham Brody – Special Guest at the January 31st Forum

In Soul Alchemy Abraham Brody will guide the public into different formations, inviting them to interact with each other and himself, experiencing his improvisations both as a collective and as individuals. 

The public will be asked to remain silent during the performance, but is very much encouraged to engage with Abraham Brody as much as possible.
