Sep. 05 - Oct. 04, 2014
Enter into the open expanse of the Temple of Spirit and immerse yourself in the paradox of Center and Circumference. SPIRIT transcends the body and touches the soul, taking us on a soaring journey in search of our own divinity. With reverence for the ancestors and descendants, we offer an experience that transgresses traditional theatre. Weaving together live world music, virtuoso singing, modern dance, and enlightened storytelling, the ensemble of SPIRIT takes us into mysterious shadow and the bright expanse of possibilities. SPIRIT is the culmination of the Elementals and is conceived and directed by award-winning visionary, Bonnie Cullum. SPIRIT is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
Devised with Cullum by the VORTEX’s stellar ensemble featuring Andy Agne (AIR, WATER), Anderson Dear (FIRE, WATER, EARTH), Kira Lumiel (Oceana, Sleeping Beauty), Gabriel Maldonado (AIR, FIRE, WATER, EARTH), Betsy McCann (AIR, FIRE, EARTH), Emerald Mystiek (WATER, EARTH) and Melissa Vogt-Patterson (FIRE, EARTH). Milton Villeda and Ethan Vlah join the ensemble to play live original world music.
Choreography by Toni Bravo (WATER, EARTH). Scenic Design by Ann Marie Gordon (AIR, WATER, EARTH). Lighting Design by Jason Amato (AIR, WATER, EARTH). Costume Design by Stephanie Dunbar (Cuchulain). Elemental Altar by Griffon Ramsey (Sleeping Beauty). Stage Management by Tamara L. Farley (AIR, FIRE, WATER, EARTH).
