Now in its 8th year, Station Hope, put together by Cleveland Public Theatre, returned for Zoom limbo to fill the street in front of Ohio City’s St. John Episcopal Church and both the church’s buildings with music, dancing, storytelling and art, revolving around ideas about human rights, freedom and justice.
The event grew out of the history of St. John’s as a stop on the Underground Railroad for slaves fleeing to freedom in Canada prior to the Emancipation. Many of the performers addressed that era, including a storyteller taking on the character of a child brought over on the last slave ship. The event drew on the talents of numerous local arts & performing ensembles and well as individual artists.
