Saturday, December 19 - 2:00 pm 
Sunday, December 20 - 7:30 pm
Monday, December 21 - 7:30 pm


The word Solstice literally means "standing still sun." The winter solstice is the shortest day of the year; it marks the turning from the cold, dark days of winter to the warmer, lighter days of spring and summer. Traditionally, this season was used as a time of reflection, renewal, and community celebration.


This ancient tale is inspired by the Warao tribe of Venezuela who make their home on the Orinoca River delta. In this story of offerings, the Warao preserve a remnant of their ancient "gift culture" in which the giving away rather than selling of parts of the selves of plants, animals, and people is the bloodlike circulation that forms community.


Warao still worship the life in every being on earth and to this end they work with other native peoples to build into Venzuela's constitution, civil rights for themselves as separate cultures.


Collaborators so far: Nanette Robinson (director, choreographer) & Karyn Reim (choreographer, dancer), Monica Boccio & Jennifer Coughlin (aerial dance), Sally Withers (vocals), Elena Martin (flute), Eugenia Woods (script), Cynthia Wasco, Sabrina Geoffrion, Raine Ugstad, and Josie Jamarta... READ MORE...
