A live album brought to life through compelling characters, music, storytelling, dance, and movement, Climb traces the familiar ups and downs of a relationship. Music blending bossa nova, jazz, reggae, and soul written and performed by Duane Forrest narrates the journey of Diego (Dwain Murphy / Duane Forrest) from a devastating breakup to meeting the captivating Mariela (Sandra Aguilar), who is grappling with her own difficult past. Proceeds from the show support Forrest's charity Genesis Community of the Arts, which offers free music and arts programming to marginalized youth in Central America.
