"This weekend we have presented a black and white series. which I have been writing on for several years. It deals with the dark side of some of the social issues that we have in our midst, especially more so now" says director of the Midwest Regional Ballet company, Kaye Lewis.
The Midwest Regional Ballet took on heavy issues such as drug abuse and mental illness in their latest show, "Black and White Series."
"We have different solos and a group dance at the end. and each solo depicts someone with mental illness. dealing with it. And then how they find out and reach out and get help. And then how they resolve and how they conquer it and become the victor of it" says performer David Scheuerman.
"I think it's because people are afraid of dark topics. And so therefore we have people living in darkness due to that situation" says Lewis.
"You want these people to walk away with hope and keep that hope. because if keep the message very hopeful and light then it shows light upon these dark things and that it's not all dark and that you can find hope and get better" says Scheuerman.
