This production is conceptually based off of our original Pulse Percussion 2018 show Guarded, but it features completely new original music. In its simplest form, this show moves from dark to light. The dark is where we hide, with walls up high, shields at the ready, protecting ourselves from everything so that nothing can hurt us. The light is the result of opening up, being true to ourselves, and experiencing life to the fullest. There is a string of narration lines that help guide the audience, but the heart of the production lies in the following line:“To show your weakness is to be vulnerable, To be vulnerable is to show your strength.”
The dark is represented by the winds and percussion most of the time and the light represented at various times by the guard or featured wind soloists. This can be totally switched up depending on your interpretation of the concept! One of the big intended GE moments is in the 2nd movement, when the entire band sheds their "armor" to become more vulnerable. To Show Your Strength has lots of potential for a an emotional, captivating, and memorable show!
This show was originally commissioned for the fall of 2019 and was released for the 2020 season.
