Review: Against The Grain’s Ayre is a vital reminder that unity is possible | The Globe and MailAs we confront the division, scorn and malice in the world these days, it is vital to be reminded that humanity has the ability to unite and share experiences, despite all the barriers that society, history, custom and culture throw between us.

Osvaldo Golijov’s Ayre, brilliantly performed by Miriam Khalil and an ensemble of 11 musicians, currently being presented at Toronto’s Ismaili Centre by Against the Grain Theatre, is a perfect and tremendously satisfying example of just that cultural transcendence, the antidote to the sad burden of reality that drums at us from our TVs, smartphones and newspapers every hour.
