A significant portion of the art world is defined by its doom-and-gloom nature, but most of the time it’s done without the desire to spark discussion. While it’s OK to delve into such works, every once in a while, one needs to witness a form of expression that demands change. Untold Stories, as put together by the Emotions Dance Company, is presenting such an occasion.  On Feb. 19 and 20 at the Lowndes Shakespeare Center’s Mandell Theater, the interpretive dance troupe sways and swirls to the thoughts of day-to-day existence and grapples in order to form a story centered on courage and hope. Performances in the past have been known to focus on tales of abuse and addiction, and while the dances themselves change, one thing hasn’t since the series’ inception in 2008: the hope of starting a conversation and making a difference in the world. 

8 p.m. Friday-Saturday, Feb. 19-20 | Mandell Theater, Orlando Shakespeare Center, 812 E. Rollins St. | 407-447-1700 | emotionsdance.org | $20
