Event Details: Dancing the Dark: Winter Solstice Celebration and Ritual
Saturday, December 21, 2013, 8 pm 'til the wee hours
Mercury Cafe, 2199 California St., Denver 80205
Here, amid the longest nights, we'll have a farewell party for this year's turn around the Wheel.
Dance to celebrate the deep still nights, their profound darkness and the informing dreams the long nights bring.
Dance to welcome back the Sun...
For your ecstatic dancing pleasure, music will be provided by Tuatha, the fabulous band from Fort Collins. World-groove, trance-dance, tribal-fusion! This click to their website gives a taste of their sound: http://www.tuatha.net/
Spiraling in, spiraling out, then releasing on the flames...
We'll also have
Sun-turning dervish dance performances from Eva and the Mercury Cafe Belly-Dancers.
Rituals of chant and dance presented by Sára Rain, and cleansing fire ceremony (outside!) with Renna Shesso.
