Ragnelle Performance at Alchemy

My next post is going to be writing extensively about the process involved in creating this piece, but first I wanted to share the performance itself without my thoughts:

Well hello there...

I'm really not sure how it happened, but something jumped up and ate April.  And now we're galloping through May with Tribal Fest on the horizon next week.

Let's see what ate April:

Waking Persephone was amazing and a huge success all around.  And yes, we're going to do it again: April 11th-14th, 2013 - in Providence.  Details will be posted soon about next year's instructors, live music, and more, so be sure to join the newsletter, facebook page, follow us on twitter, give us all of your kittens, etc.  (By the way, the picture to the left is of myself and my student Samara, during our "Lunatics Have Taken Over the Asylum" piece.  If you're good, you may see video of it.  But only if you're good.  I will write more details about how the event went down soon, maybe after Tribal Fest.

The next week, I took a little break and tried to recover, before launching myself into ABRAXAS Dance Theatre's "Alchemy" show in Cambridge, MA - and I definitely want to spend some time writing about this show, and particularly the piece I created for it, so more on that soon.

And now, it's MAY!

This weekend is Steampunk City up in Waltham, MA where I will be teaching and performing and vending both days. Saturday: performance at 2pm, workshop at 4pm.  Sunday, workshop is at 2pm, performance is at 4pm.  I will be vending outside in Landry Park, which is in front of the Museum, and adjacent to where Jake von Slatt will be set up with his amazing Steampunk RV and roadster.

And yeah, so a week from today, I leave for California for Tribal Fest. I will be teaching "Essence of the Dance" on Thursday, from 2:30-4:30pm and there are a few slots available still if you want to take it (and you do).  I'll be at the Meet & Greet Thursday night., Friday afternoon I'll be setting up for vending inside, in my usual spot, and at 3pm, Anaar and I, along with the live music of Nathaniel Johnstone, will perform the opening ritual dance for the event! Saturday, I'm performing solo (again with Nathaniel) at 5:30pm  - then join us all at Aubergine After Dark, starting at 9:30pm for a fabulous and super fun afterparty with The Nathaniel Johnstone Band, Unwoman, myself, Asharah, Celeste, The Standfire Collective, IrinaXara, and YOU - cause there will be LOTS of open floor dancing!
