Ballet 5:8 Presents Reckless at the Hemmens Cultural Center

This event has passed.


Julianna Rubio Slager’s Reckless upends the stereotypes surrounding sex work. Based on the ancient story of Hosea and Gomer, Slager allows Gomer’s voice to narrate the tragic and misunderstood realities of human trafficking.

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.
