September 18, 2022, 7pm – 8:30pm The Awesome Difficult Work of Love launches six days and 15 arts experiences in our first Sedona Arts for Peace Week, September 18-23, 2022. Presented by Sedona International City of Peace celebrating 10 years of International Day of Peace The Awesome Difficult Work of Love is a performance by thirteen Sedona-area storytellers and musicians, sharing their journeys around claiming identity and searching for community in the face of judgements, stereotypes, and prejudices. Composed and conceived by Adrienne Torf, directed by Camilla Ross and Mindy Mendelsohn, produced by Margaret Joy Weaver for the Sedona International City of Peace/Sedona Arts for Peace Week and inspired by the work of the great African American poet, essayist, activist and teacher June Jordan.
The Awesome Difficult Work of Love encourages audiences to reach across boundaries of identity to forge connections with others whom they may know as neighbors, co-workers or friends, but whose defining identities are not often revealed or acknowledged. It also aims to give everyone, both on stage and in the audience, an artistically moving reminder of how important it is to love oneself as we move toward building trust and empathy with others in our broader community.
