MAHWAH, N.J. –The second annual Call for Artists at Ramapo College of New Jersey titled “Healing Hands” will take the stage on Saturday, February 19 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, February 20 at 3 p.m. at the Berrie Center for the Arts.

“Healing Hands” is a weekend of works-in-progress based on how the arts are contributing to healing during these challenging times. Act I on Saturday evening will feature the Ballaro Dance work “Embedded Memories,” acknowledging personal histories through the lens of scars and their images which live permanently on our bodies and storyteller and artist William Doan’s work “My Anxiety Project,” an exploration of how art has become an integral part to his journey to mental health.  Act II on Sunday afternoon will feature the piano/violin duo 48 St. Stephen with works by composers Bongani Ndodana-Breen, Yoon-Ji Lee, and Oliver Messian who take us on a musical journey from chaos to calm and a repeat of William Doan’s performance.

Following each performance, Berrie Center director Lisa Campbell will engage in a Q&A with the artists.
