Hand Me Down, Bestowing Our True Inheritance Through Life, Lessons and Legacy is an evening of multimedia, movement theater, music, and story inviting you to genuinely delve into the compelling complexities and joyous reminiscences of our home and the legacy we receive from those before us and to those who follow. Based on the lives of 38 community members, choreographer Barrie Barton distills the collection of stories and movements into a passionate and poignant interpretation that conveys a universal message.

With 3 highly successful keynote performances from 2006 -2009 reaching over 1000 audience members, Barrie presents her fourth Community Choreography Project Hand Me Down: Bestowing Our True Inheritance Through Life, Lessons and Legacy.


The word Legacy will be milling, muddling and meandering through the halls of Jubilee in the coming months, which is where the rehearsals for Hand Me Down take place. Collaboration between Jubilee Community and Hand Me Down, Bestowing our True Inheritance Through Life, Lessons and Legacy (see there’s that word already) is afoot.

For the month of March, the Hospitality room of Jubilee features photography by Paul Howey and Doc Klein of rehearsals for Hand Me Down. The photography show features two co-created pieces developed by choreographer Barrie Barton: There’s No Place Like Home and From that I am; From this I live. Both pieces examine the ordinary moments and memories of our sense of place and how we view our contributions to this life.

Jubilee is located at 46 Wall Street, Asheville NC 28801, Phone: 828-252-5335.

JUBILEE! asks– WHAT IS YOUR LEGACY?

“I hope my legacy involves an enduring belief in fairness in how we treat other people. Personally, in a family, in a group, in a country – the way we treat others is paramount. In fact, one of my mantras is, ‘Life is not fair. But it is interesting.’” Jim Taylor

“If I left this realm today, who knows? Our legacy is not decided by us but by those who look at it later. We all hope to be thought of favorably but let’s be honest. Our opinions are biased. The best I can hope for is to take what is in front of me today and do the best I can with that. The legacy part will take care of itself.” Griggs Ward

“My legacy? I hope my legacy turns out to be a sense open-mindedness, acceptance, and compassion for all. . From whatever influence I might have had on my children, may they be inclined to pass it on to their children, and may they pass it to their children, and so on. What a wonderful, anonymous legacy that would be.” Paul M Howey

“I want the people who remember me to look at my life and say, ‘No matter what happened, she kept on dancing.’” Sheryl Cramer
