From the darkness we came and to it we will return. Life, what happens in between, is a lesson in tolerance. The challenges we face during the brief process we call living are but moments of learning. The first thing we do when we enter this life is to scream, we scream for attention, we scream for joy, we scream for progress, we scream for justice, we want to live, with every scream we let the world know that we are here to help for ours is the one true path.

If you have ever felt that something is missing from your existence, or you have sometimes felt empty and that your life lacks direction and meaning. WE CAN HELP

“To the bone” is a gathering of diversely skilled people with ideas, ideas that might change life as you know it.

The show is in the format of a talk-show where belief systems and work methods are examined and how these two sometimes collide and become one and the same.

The performers are a mixture of dancers, actors, visual artists, musicians and politicians.
