Shadowtender: Liber II

This is a past event. Sunday, April 28 at 2:00pm 4:00pm

Headwaters Theatre 55 N.E. Farragut St. #9, Portland, OR 97211

A live performance. An invocation of beauty within darkness and light.

Shadowtender: Liber II is a love letter to the terrifying secrets of the {queer} female body - the silent language of memory, nightmares, transmutation and the endless desire to bloom. Loosely inspired by the concept of the Jungian Shadow, it is an invitation to untangle twisted muscle and locked joints . . . to transmute a struggle for dominance into a tender embrace.

Created by a vibrant bi-coastal creative team of dancers, immigrants, artists, designers and scientists, Shadowtender: Liber II combines butoh, physical theatre, martial arts, alchemy and wearable sculpture to externalize aspects of self that we fear and repress for the purpose of fostering dialogue and integration. Each performance will be followed by a Q+A session with the artists. Read more about the Shadowtender project.
