ARA Ritual III: “Waterways, Time Weaves”
January 19-20, 2018
“Waterways, Time Weaves” is the culminating production of an over three-year collaborative process of ritual, healing and performance with the community groups “CoRazOn”, Asian American Immigrant Women's Collective, and “B.A.B.Y.”, Bay Area Bhutanese Youth Group.
Myth connects us to our lands, nature, history, belief systems, and to each other. Myth connects us through time and space. From our homelands to new lands, through Waterways. From ancestor time to the present. Myth shines a light on how we may continue into the future to heal fractured relationships and start living in harmony with ourselves, our lands, and each other.
We invite you to co-create this ritual performance with us where we will summon the spirits of our ancestors to remember and honor our shared histories, our ancestral stories, lives and death. Together, we will create a safe and respectful space so that you may also invite the spirits of your ancestors and departed loved ones to honor their stories
ARA III was made possible by generous support from MAP Fund; Kenneth Rainin Foundation New & Experimental Works Program; the Shawl Anderson Dance Center and all the people who donated at ARA Ritual I & II. So much gratitude to Dancers' Group for choosing us to be a part of their pilot matching fund program and to our amazing donors who gave generously to help us make our match.
