    Special feature: Each piece will have a short introduction by the Artist, or an interview with Reichlin, or a short verbal introduction. Both programs are individual, with Program One/ Sept 19 seeming a little more family driven with dances created before the Pandemic, and Program Two/ Sept 20, a little more intense in subject matter, mostly with dances made during the Pandemic, but both with a diverse range.
