AVAdance presents Turiya: Weaving Light into Story performance

July 16, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

AVAdance Collaborative presents
Turiya: Weaving Light into Story
a multi-media collaboration

Whether it is through meditation, mantra, prayer, dance, storytelling, or the activities of our everyday lives, we each have access to an unbounded awareness that allows for untapped resources to be transformed into powerful healing opportunities, bringing us closer to the light.

Turiya*: Weaving Light into Story, is a concert-length collaborative, multimedia work that will synergize expressive dance, movement theatre, original music, spoken word, projected imagery and more.  The fabric of the story weaves together many different personal narratives of confronting adversity, drawn directly from the life experiences of the richly diverse and multi-generational group of participating artists. Travelling between the pedestrian and the dream-like, Turiya is an offering about how each one of us must creatively navigate the journey from darkness to light.

*In Hindu philosophy Turiya means the “fourth” or “pure” state of consciousness that underlies the three common states of waking, sleeping, and dreaming.
“Collaboration is the core from which this work has been co-created. We celebrate and savor the process of  developing movement-based works while nourishing the artist within.” – Michelle Ava, artistic director
AVAdance Collaborative is currently a Resident Company at Joy of Motion Dance Center.
