A DEEP SPACE PERFORMANCE RESIDENCY
Obie and Bessie award winning feminist acrobatic dance company, LAVA, presents A Goddessey, the company's feminist survival story that journeys through landscapes emotional and geologic, carrying a transmuting traveler from a bleak and blurry patriarchal present into a rainbow colored feminist future, with the help of ancestors geologic and otherwise. A Goddessey is the synthesis, culmination, and explosion of 15 years of earth moving performance.
