Keely Garfield Dance (KGD) will present an encore performance of Mandala at New York Live Arts: Live Ideas 2018/Radical Vision Festival on April 21st at 7.30pm.
Radical Vision is informed by a desire to find the temerity to change the things we cannot accept. How do we not simply protect democracy, but make it stronger? What are new (radical) ways forward—ways that go to the roots of our current democratic crisis? The festival will present five days of activity around the idea of an open society, to imagine its future and understand its past. Through public forums, performances, readings and workshops, we will conduct a forward-looking, critical appraisal of key democratic institutions including the press, technology corporations, criminal justice, electoral process.
Tickets and Information here Live Ideas/Radical Visions - Resistance & Friends.
“What forms can we create in modern society that will be conducive to seeing the oneness of life? What are the forms that will make it easier to experience interconnectedness?" - Zen Peacemakers Order.
This inquiry motivates Mandala, an act of dance that unites movers and makers in communal listening, embodied ritual, and a call to social action. Part folk, part protest, and part shamanic-rite, Mandala asserts that there is valor in dancing, and valor can move from individual bodies into the body of the world, activate positive change, and transform the times.
Mandala is performed by yours truly and a star-powered cast Paul Hamilton, Raja Feather Kelly, Emma Rose Brown, Angie Pittman, Doug LeCours, Eleanor Smith, Dwayne Brown, Carlo Antonio Villaneuva, Lawrence Goldhuber, Jamel West, and spirited guest artist students from Lang Dance, The New School.
