Shamanic Storytelling Showcase

We gathered for one season and through ritual and play we created the safety to share our stories, dreams, and visions. We got naked metaphorically, and literally and birthed this body of personal narratives. Today we invite you into our circle and ask that you breathe deep and see yourself in our performances.
The Showcase opened with An invocation by Ember. "Open Me up so I can Recieve, Open me up so I can Believe." One of our cast members was called away to be with her father during his transition to the other side. We dedicate this show to: Rita Mooney.
Shawn Roop shares his initation into tantra in a piece called: The gift of receiving.
Colibri performs her intiation into polyamory in a piece called: This changes everything.
One of the fundamental practices of the Shamanic path is soul retrieval. The next series of personal narratives are True stories that illustrate a variety of ways to reclaim our wholeness. Akasha Rose performs Recovery Room
Kamala Devi does Liberation Through Bondage.
A shaman is someone who straddles two worlds: Light, Dark, Male, Female, Animal and God sometimes shape shifts into other forms… and they often work in the realm of altered states, such as dreamtime and vision. Put your hands together for the next series of surreal stories. Ember Shares Extra Terrestrial Shamanism.
Rae Newoman uses the shamanic tool of turning her wounds into art, music and song in her piece called Circumsision and then offers another ensamble piece called: Sister Gayles Ascension with the help of Shawn, Akasha, Michael and Colibri.
Michael McClure Plays the guitar after performing his piece Sleepwalker.
Rae Newoman, Colibri and Akasha dance in the "flow of the universe" together.
Another healing tool that the Shaman uses is art. I want to acknowledge Sister Sarah for painting this gorgeous backdrop.  Sarah Anchors the show with her final sexy act called: Billie Jean.
I love my Tantra Theater Cast!
After the show we offered a 30 minute Q & A which was like a delicious dessert after a special feast. 
I presented Tantra Theater's mock version of the academy award: The Golden Lingam Award to Michael McClure for being the most valuable player and special kudos to his work as Eco Elf.
If you can imagined yourself up here on stage telling your story...We invite you to come and Audition for tantra theater on Thurs. May 13th. No experience necessary. We will be starting another 90 day class that will culminate in a big stage production like this in August. It will be called...
