Opening Performance

Concept and Choreography by Chokyi Palmo
April 7th @6:15pm

Five elements - the external elements that constitute all matter: earth, water, fire, air and space. These outer elements interact with the inner elements within our own physical bodies with the potential and quality of these five elements also existing within our minds. The Mind’s ability to serve as the ground for all experiences is the quality of earth; its continuity and adaptability is water; its clarity and capacity to perceive is fire; its continuous movement is air; and its unlimited emptiness is space.

Dancers, representing natural elements and ultimate wisdom in concert with the music, evoke the sound and movements of cosmic celestial travellers from another dimension who strengthen the force of life and light through their blessings. These beings visit our world in times of stress and danger, bringing with them the positive energy that inspires harmony and peace.
