*DAIPANbutoh Collective presents:
The work is inspired by faith, what people believe in and how they practice it. Faith goes by the name of various religions and philosophies that help us deal with life’s questions and sustain us through the ups and downs of everyday life. Christmas, Hanukkah, and other celebrations make December a month of giving and sharing so we have decided to hold this performance as a benefit for Childhaven based in Seattle. The money donated to Childhaven will go towards their operational expenses. Our intention is to share an uplifting performance while benefitting children in need.
