Since 2005, Pasadena’s Lineage Dance Company has been presenting Healing Blue to raise support and awareness for breast cancer centers across the country. The show tells the true stories of women in their struggles and triumphs over cancer. These stories form the emotional backbone of the night, and dive into touching, profound, and sometimes hilarious aspects of living with an often life-threatening illness. Each year Lineage brings new women’s stories to light as well as the choreography that has been inspired by their words.
This show also marks a decade of Lineage’s partnering with The Foundation For Living Beauty, a nonprofit organization focused on cancer support, whose clients are featured as storytellers in Healing Blue.
This performance of Healing Blue is made possible in part by the City of Pasadena Arts & Culture Commission and the City of Pasadena Cultural Affairs Division.
Lineage Dance’s Artistic Director, Hilary Thomas, is known for telling stories through dance. The company’s pieces focus on subjects that often prove difficult to discuss–everything from the stories of breast cancer covered in Healing Blue, to topics of homelessness, mental illness, gender and identity, and more. The company makes its home in the Lineage Performing Arts Center, where it has produced original material since 2010.
Runtime: 70 minutes. Age appropriateness: due to difficult subject matter surrounding cancer, and tasteful photos of breast cancer survivors post-surgery, we recommend care when considering attending with children.
The Lineage Performing Arts Center is located at 89 S Fair Oaks Ave. in Pasadena.
