February 21, 2007|By Mary Carole McCauley | Mary Carole McCauley,Sun reporter

All the white dancers gathered on the right side of the stage, all the black dancers on the left.

Troupe member Theresa DeAngelo recalls the stricken silence that fell over the Full Circle Dance Company when choreographer Travis Gatling separated the dancers by race during the first rehearsal of the piece called "Across the Lines."

Borders Uncrossed will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Baltimore Museum of Art, Art Museum Drive at North Charles and 31st streets. $15. 410-235-9003.
