Saturday @ Duke // New Creation presents "Leaps and Bounds"

New Creation is excited to announce an original and exciting performance going up this Saturday (March 27) on Duke's East Campus. Read the press release below to learn all about the special performance of Leaps and Bounds.

Leaps and Bounds is a one woman show which explores the intersection of faith, ecology, and the global economy. The show is developed and performed by Tevyn East and written by Ched Myers, Carl Magruder, and Grace Tea. On tour Spring 2010 only.

Using a number of creative tools including storytelling, song, poetry, prayer, movement, and film, this work of theater sheds light on the driving factors of our ecological crisis while awakening the imagination to a new way of living with and relating to Earth. Grounded in theological reflection, Leaps and Bounds, embodies an adventure, searching for the values that would support an economic system that promotes human well-being and ecological health.

The Affording Hope Project accesses the transformative power of art to inspire the Christian church to be a prophetic witness to alternative economic systems of sufficiency andsolidarity.
