Borrowing the metaphor used in political economic theory, Invisible Hands explores the many unseen but influential forces that govern our collective decision-making and actions. The dancers investigate a shift from persistent patterns of conflict and blame to ways of being that can truly hold complexity and foster empathy, understanding, and accountability.
