INCLUSIVITY - the power of togetherness
In the second program of its 26th concert season, The Esoterics will unveil the potential power of human togetherness, INCLUSIVITY. This performance will trace the origins of otherness in our first moments of life, and explore how these emotions develop into exclusion at both the interpersonal and societal levels, resulting in divisiveness, xenophobia, shunning, persecution, violence, and the loneliness and wandering of exile. This program will also advocate for philoxenia the desire to show hospitality and acceptance of strangers which promotes the idea that we are stronger together, as an interdependent human community.
