"Bone Mother" Life Force Arts Ensemble Performance7:30 PM » 9:30 PM
Please join Life Force Arts Ensemble for another in our series of performances created for each of the eight Wheel of the Year Festivals. Surrounded by the beautiful artwork in the current LFA art exhibit The Waning Year we use music, movement, story and visual art to catalyze a highly transformative event.
In tonight's healing ritual we discover the transformative power of attuning to nature's seasons at Samhain, October 31, as the leaves fall, nature's energy turns inward and we reap the final harvest of the year. Through the healing power of this performance, Bone Mother, goddess of death and rebirth, invites us mortal creatures to reflect on our ephemeral existence. What is the relationship you have with death? What is the meaning of life in general and of your life in particular? What is your legacy? What stories will future generations tell of you?
As Featured Artist Colleen Koziara says:
We always dance with death.
Death is our most intimate dance partner....And one day we all will leave,
and nothing but our bones will be left behind to show that we ever walked this earth
Or maybe not...
Creative Team for Bone Mother: Natalja Aicardi, Barry Bennett, Aura Chapa, Joan Forest Mage and Kristen Wray; based on a concept and painting by Colleen Koziara.
