Audiences will explore St. John’s sanctuary, parish hall, basement and surrounding grounds to view an array of short dance, theatre, storytelling and multimedia performances created by over 150 artists from Northeast Ohio, addresses some of the most important issues of our time. Visual art installation, choir performances and other activities set the atmosphere around the church.
