Ballet 5:8 presents Reckless, an original full-length ballet by Julianna Rubio Slager. Cliché stereotypes fall apart when we look at someone’s life through their own eyes. The stories of those in the sex trade are broken, painful and often misunderstood. Reckless explores the story of Gomer, the promiscuous wife of the prophet Hosea. The story of Gomer has been retold in countless lives, frequently ending in tragedy and sorrow. In this story, we see the reckless, beautiful love of God pursue to the darkest street corner to redeem the one He loves.
