TO LISTEN follows a woman as she is faced with prejudice and judgment, curiosity and recognition. As she encounters a different culture, a different point of view, a different mindset, she experiences an internal rebellion and conflict, yet a yearning for resolution and inclusion. The dancer is forced to stand her ground, yet at the same time remain humble. Through the constant shift between acceptance and resistance, this character finally arrives at a place where she is able to let go of grudge and mistrust, and she is completely ready to listen.
