Kairos uses dance as a platform to bring about social awareness; their recent June 2017 performance, ‘Light in the Moonless Midnight’, a multimedia and dance experience in efforts to erase the stigma of mental illness, was met with an emotionally stirred audience response. The company was invited by Tim Robbins’ Actor’s Gang to perform in their Innovative Choreographers Series October 2017. Since then Kairos has performed two full-length pieces at the Actors' Gang - 'Paradigm' (social media and its effects) in February of 2018 and 'She Speaks' (women's empowerment) in April of 2019. VISIT HAZEL'S WEBSITE
