You may be wondering: What's the connection between Tantra and Theater? To which I say:
Tantra acknowledges that desire, sex and pleasure are as sacred as prayer, worship, and ritual. While Theater, as a medium, is the culmination of the 64 tantric temple arts (music, song, dance, mimicry...see blog post below) Together, Tantra Theater is a sensual ritual where the community comes together, turns down the lights, breaths together, laughs together and cries together as they focus their attention on provocative entertainment. By transparently dramatizing our personal narratives Tantra Theater players give the audience permission to see their sex as sacred, and their life as art. Our mission is to transmute sexual guilt shame and fear into art healing and liberation.
To celebrate we're going to have:
- tatoo art
- ice breakers
- free door prizes
- fun improvisation
- audience participation
- And of course, original performance art by Shawn Roop, Michael, Joy, Ember, Sarah, Janos & More!
