Inspired by the complex, haunting imagery of Billy Collins's poetry, everything is fine unfolds in seven interwoven narratives mapping an array of themes: love, solitude, separation, forgiveness, aging. Performed by a multi-generational cast of 16 artists, it delves deep into memories, creating intimate portraits of ordinary lives.

What does Utopia mean to you? Is it a physical, external place-or, might it reside internally?
Choreographed by Valerie Green and in collaboration with visual artist Keren Anavy with original music by Mark Katsaounis, VG/DE's newest evening length work, Utopia, explores the idea of a perfect place through dance and visual art. The work questions whether Utopia might be an internal place, investigated through personal and intimate moments and alongside the community.
