A Raven Spirit Dance Production
Gathering Light follows the journey of seed to flower, beginning with the stirrings of consciousness to the full embrace of transformation. Dancers delve into the impulses rooted in our bodies that travel through us to find the light, exposing the structures that do not support our own truths, while revealing the ceremonies that support our full bloom. Choreographed by Michelle Olson.
Performed in the round, Gathering Light creates a sense of ritual where transformation is an experience the audience intimately shares with the performers.
