A Multi-Media Concert Performance & Film Screening Event from Marya Stark in collaboration with Jade Sanchez, Numatik and Earth Based Media.
Friday April 12th: 7 pm

The event will include a Live Concert from Marya Stark featuring Dance Choreography and community Water Ceremony with Jade Sanchez, a Dance Party with Numatik and the Screening of the short film Underground River, a collaborative ceremonial art film by Marya Stark and Earthbased Media.

This film is a celebration of the waters of the world, a movement honoring the sacredness of grief, the spirits of the elemental guardians, the weaving of the rivers, inter-generational restoration of the water gates, and the cleansing of the Soul from the depth of the waters within. It is formed around Marya's forthcoming album Underground River (a collaboration with Daniel Berkman) and is a wordless story of the journey of the waters.

To celebrate this short film and water ceremony, you are invited to dress in blues and other colors that are connected to the waters of the world.
