Nevertheless interweaves the companies of Cat Call Choir and ka·nei·see | collective in explorations of topics that will feel familiar to some and frightening to others, ranging from being told to smile to being followed home at night.
The first installment premiered in April 2018 in San Francisco, CA where it was met with sold out houses, an endorsement from Senator Elizabeth Warren, a multitude of press coverage and, most importantly, feedback that confirmed that Nevertheless is an instigation of empathy and catharsis.
