Friday May 11th, 2018 - Doors: 7pm ~ Show: 7:30 pm ~ Music Jam: 9pm
This is a first creative collaboration between long time friends pan drum musician Saffire Bouchelion and movement artist Lynn Gravatt. Join us for a Magical HandPan Journey accompanied by dance, aerial hoop, and LED flow arts.
Saffire says "I have been playing these beautiful instruments for over 7 years. Their depth and range never cease to amaze me. Their very sound is alchemical in nature, like metal becoming water, becoming air, which has a very interesting effect on the listener, relaxing and trance like while being activating at the same time. I'm so excited to share this sonic journey with you. During the performance those present will have the opportunity to explore some rhythmic structures and join our voices together in song/chant. The amazing Lynn Gravatt will be adding her aerial and dance to the performance!"
