2019: Unity and Inclusion

"Star Seed"

Portrait GhostWinona Heyer-Soma pastel on paper.jpeg

A poetic narrative of three seeds of our existence-- breath, minds and voices--unifying us across our differences. A beautiful dance production with representation from our local BIPOC, LBGTQ and disabled communities.  Key Artists: Coleen Lorenz and 20 artists, eleven from marginalized communities. An audience of 600 attended three performances at the Canada College Theater

There were two accompanying workshop series: one with dancers performing pieces and audience members creating art, and the other using art and movement therapy to provide tools for therapists working with marginalized communities.

“Star Seed’s artistry was eye opening and incredible!  The visuals, choreography, poetic words, and vocals were woven together seamlessly.” 

                                                                           -- Scott Klein, Software Engineer

What If . . .

We are all star seeds born of the cosmos

Planted here in six degrees of separation

race

gender

sexual preference

culture

identity

age

class

religion

 

Each with our own unique dance of contrast and reckoning

What If . . .

We are the keepers of three powerful seeds:

Our breath, Our mind, Our voice
