WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Nickel Mines interprets a 2006 Lancaster, PA, Amish schoolhouse shooting in which a lone gunman shot 10 girls, 5 fatally, before taking his own life. This unique work fuses movement, music, and text to explore multiple viewpoints of what the Amish call 'The Happening.' Making no judgments, imposing no morals, Nickel Mines is a living memorial to the young girls who lost their lives that day. It is also an entry point to a conversation on how violence, faith, forgiveness, and justice speak to and interact with one another.
