We are excited to announce that we were selected for this years In Nature's Studio - Real Bodies event at the Reading Public Museum Arboretum. In Nature’s Studio brings performing artists out from inside the theater to the beautiful Reading Public Museum Arboretum. Solo performers (music, dance, poetry, theater) will be stationed on benches or grassy areas along the accessible walking path. Each will perform their own work on a schedule, either a short work on repeat or a longer piece or collection of pieces for up to 90 minutes.The performances are for everyone, seasoned theatergoers and those who want to enjoy a walk in nature with some music, dance, and spoken word along the way.
This event is especially cool as it allows us to connect our music with other artists and their work. For me, I was drawn to the Real Bodies exhibit as a way of connecting my lyrics to the body and the soul. I started thinking about topics like somatization and turning mental pain into physical aliments. Why and how does this occur? I've always been amazed at the power of thought and state of mind. It also got me thinking about the limitations of our physical bodies and the timeless question about what lies beyond our physical existence; if anything at all. When I'm writing lyrics, I tend to be drawn to these types of ideas and themes. One thing I look forward to at this show is drawing from the work around me and in the museum to workshop some new music and lyrics. As part of the performance new music will be improvised and written on the spot. Who knows...perhaps you can even help write the song.
We hope to see you there in your own Real Body.
