Acadia University presents "A World Transformed", an Echo Chamber production.

Through contemporary dance and live music, “A World Transformed” shares the story of Matthew Shepard, a young man from Laramie, Wyoming who was killed because of his sexuality. Matthew Shepard's death was pivotal to the 2SLGBTQIA+ community, sparking global action and change.
“A World Transformed” explores the perspectives of both Matthew and his mother, Judy Shepard, who became one of the leading pioneers in 2SLGBTQIA+ rights.

The show has been choreographed by acclaimed Canadian dance makers William Yong and Laurence Lemieux, and features singers Marcel d'Entremont and Christianne Rushton, pianists Dakota Scott-Digout and Mary Castello, violinist Aaron Schwebel, and dancers Johanna Bergfelt and Zachary Cardwell.
