Legacies are always stifling, Judson is no different. We are all shaped by so many unseen forces and there seem to be few escapes from the past. A lifetime of influences are inside any action just as a body is a record of every movement it has made. We practice relating and including with you, the church, and each other as a guide to move beyond what we have been and reach into what we could be.

As the Choreographer/Director of projectLIMB Gabriel Forestieri is deeply engaged with including the world in his art.
