The Laurel of Asheville wrote about the show. Here is an excerpt. Follow the link for the full article:

Hand Me Down is combination of multimedia, movement theater, poetry, music, and stories created in a spirit of collaboration between the dancers and the choreographer. The cast includes more than 50 members from Asheville and the surrounding area. The dancers say they have drawn inspiration from their own life stories and have chosen them to share those with the audience. The result is a passionate and poignant interpretation of a universal message.

Barrie says, “The production is a tapestry of compelling complexities and joyous reminiscences of our home and the legacy we receive from those who not only came before us, but also for those who will follow.”

CCP invites participants to engage in artful play, imaginative exploration, and spontaneous expression through movement, stories, creative writing, and choreography. Each project is motivated and inspired by particular themes from the participants’ lives. Through the production, their collective stories emerge and are interpreted through movement, music, and voice.
