2018–2019 SEASON AT A GLANCE DISCOVER GREAT PERFORMANCES “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” —Marcel Proust A voyage of discovery will be different for every person. Through performances of music, words, and movement we unearth what it means to be human and perhaps find a place in the world where our own humanity may shine. Chico Performances welcomes you to explore with us beauty, culture, art, and ideas.
