“Ballet dancers, musicians, actors and poets will raise awareness through the arts about homelessness in New York City,” said TheEdwardMorganBallet director Joseph Alexander. Mr. Alexander is inspired by James Weldon Johnson’s “The Creation,” from the 1927 book of poems “God’s Trombones.”
The performance is choreographed by Edward Morgan, former principal of Joffrey Ballet NYC, director of Joffrey II and choreographer of ClubMTV. He is currently choreographer of his own ballet company, TheEdwardMorganBallet, under the direction of Joseph Alexander. The New York Times has hailed TheEdwardMorganBallet as “luminous, joyous dance.”
Interim Executive Director Bishop Andrew R. St. John is thrilled to celebrate Earth Day with TheEdwardMorganBallet. “The convergence of the arts, honoring the earth and raising awareness on behalf of homeless guests will be a beautiful way to express our commitment to what we call ‘Food for the Soul,'” he said. “We’re so impressed by and grateful for the Edward Morgan’s generous and tireless effort.”
