Medusa's full story is scarcely known beyond her vilified ending as a monster and destroyer of men. Vox Medusa and Infiammati FireCircus join forces to honor the powerful myth of Medusa's transformation from Athena's loving and devoted priestess to demonized gorgon. Infiammati spins fire to bring to life Medusa's emotional state and the destruction of her innocence, while Vox Medusa unfolds her tale of sorrow and redemption. MEDUSA is a fiercely provocative and visually stunning outdoor production set along the bank of Boom Island Park. This poignant story is retold by passionate artists collaborating through contemporary dance, fire performance, a video projected set, and an original electronic music score accompanied by live vocalists. This production earned the Minnesota Fringe Audience Choice Awards in 2014 and 2015.

MEDUSA is presented August 3-12 at 8:30pm each evening.
Audience may bring blankets or collapsible chairs for seating if desired.

You Are Here is inspired by principles of phenomenology, universal laws, existentialism, and determinism.

You Are Here seeks to identify the fleeting, reflective conscious under lenses of the past and the future. If the universe is absolute, and time is independent, consciousness becomes the process in which we assign meaning to the world around us, forming a reality convoluted by interpretation. But time moves both ways, turning even a moment of awareness into a web of then and now, of there and here.

Sarah Baumert teaches a Feldenkrais® Awareness Through Movement lesson every Friday morning 9-10am. These classes will be by donation, while Sarah finishes her training.

The Feldenkrais Method® is a form of somatic education that uses gentle movement and directed attention to improve movement and enhance human functioning. Through this method, you can increase your ease and range of motion, improve your flexibility and coordination, and rediscover your innate capacity for graceful, efficient movement. These improvements will often generalize to enhance functioning in other aspects of your life.

The Feldenkrais Method is based on principles of physics, biomechanics and an empirical understanding of learning and human development. By expanding the self-image through movement sequences that bring attention to the parts of the self that are out of awareness, the method enables you to include more of yourself in your functioning movements. EVERYONE IS WELCOME!
