The artist we’ve brought together are able to offer our community a safe space and diverse platform to inspire our youth and show them that we all have voices and that we are all capable of great things. We all connect differently and all it takes is one performance to change someone’s life and open up a whole new world of possibilities.
This an evening length of work through collaboration and collective work from artist in Sarasota, St. Pete, Tampa and Orlando.

There will also be a screening of Had She Never Asked Me, a short film inspired by the poem written by Daniel J. Watts in response to the June 12, 2016 shooting that killed 49 people and wounded 58 others inside Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. Choreographer Cindy Salgado, having been commissioned to choreograph a new piece for Barton Movement, chose Daniel’s original text as the foundation of her new piece. The original work premiered at Axis Connect in Los Angeles, CA in 2016.Eager to reach a broader audience with this piece, Cindy Salgado and Charissa Barton set out to capture it on camera, the result of which is this film.
Infinite gratitude goes out to everyone involved in the creation of this film.
