“BEAT” — IT CAN MEAN MANY THINGS.
To violently attack; to lose; to be exhausted. Beat. A rhythm to a song. Beat. An area or place where a police officer patrols. The Heartbeat is the universal sign of life. The Heartbeat is the core of our very being. Theater for Humanity is the sum of many heartbeats. Violence, exhaustion, having given up, police territory and the art, the musicality, the rhythm of it all is what HeartBEAT captures.
