Julianna Rubio Slager’s 2021 World Premiere Reckless brings an ancient story of tragedy and incredible compassion into the 21st Century. Cliché stereotypes fall apart when we look at someone’s life through their own eyes.

The stories of those in the sex trade are broken, painful, and often misunderstood. Reckless explores the story of Gomer, the wife of the prophet Hosea. The story of Gomer has been retold in countless lives, frequently ending in tragedy and sorrow. In this story we see the reckless love of God through Hosea, as he runs to the darkest street corners to redeem the one He loves.

The ballet is about sex-trafficking, we recommend it for audiences 13 and older due to those themes. There is no nudity or vulgar dancing.
