2020 Things and 2020 Thoughts
What is on my mind... I'm happy you asked!
It's witching season at Starbelly! Above is a video promo we made for the 10th Annual Big Bad-Ass Belly Dance Show, Medusa Head and the Witches of Rak! I am the director/producer/camera man/editor/bossy person for this promo and I am incredibly grateful that I could get four beautiful and fabulous women to do what I told them to for over 2 minutes!
This is a weird show, friends - and it is NOT to be missed! I don't want to spoil the surprises we have in store, but I will say that we have carried through a lot of the energy from 2019 and we are putting it to creative use. Click on the button below to snag your tickets!
There are even more weirdly wonderful promos happening on our Facebook Page - go and see how Medusa's vengeful spirit has been a part of history all along!
So my December post was lame... why have I been so busy?
Creative Lab in Santa Fe
Cecilia and I did a thing earlier this month where we went to Santa Fe to immerse ourselves in art! Hosted by Myra Krein, Kaeshi Chai from NYC led a Creative Lab -a weekend where we created two pieces which will be a part of Myra's annual show, Invaders of the Heart. This year, Starbelly will be a part of that show and Cecilia and I could not resist the opportunity to interact with the beautiful dancers at Pomegranate Studios and take part in some of Santa Fe's culture (I could write about 500 blog posts on Meow Wolf alone). All in all, this trip was very important for me, but not in the ways I was anticipating! I have a lot to learn and as I process the information I received perhaps I'll share all of my lessons eloquently and succinctly (yeah right).
Thank you to everyone that made my time in Santa Fe so special. I cannot wait to go back and hang out with all of my new friends and show the everyone what the dancers from Boise have to bring to the table!
Back to the future: What ELSE is coming up in February?!
Cecilia, Bayla and I are joining several wonderful performers for Seas The Day, A Sofishticated Fantasea presented by Frankly Burlesque at the Visual Arts Collective from 9pm to 11pm. This event benefits Immigrant Justice Idaho, an amazing non profit that does vital work in the Treasure Valley. Find out more information here!
