Spirit Light Dance Company Presents ~ Remember When


                                      Spirit Light Dance Company Presents
                                           ~~~~ Remember When ~~~~
                                  October 9th, 16th, 23rd, and November 6th
                                                        12 Noon SLT
                                       Sponsored by Rockcliffe University


After a box of VHS tapes is unceremoniously dumped on Shelly and Larry's floor (Characters you will remember from "Dancing with the SLDC Stars") the Spirit Light Dance Company takes you on a toe-tapping trip down Movie Memory Lane. This performance is both theater and dance.

                                  You don't want to miss this unique show.    

~~ Stay'n Alive,  Saturday Night Fever, Annie, White Nights, Star Wars, Batman, Troy, Ghostbusters,  Welcome to Burlesque, Magnificent Seven, Mission Impossible, Happy Feet, I Armageddon, Dirty Dancing,  and topped off by a rousing "Dirty Dancing ~~

Maybe the performance will make you cry.  Maybe you will smile.  Probably you will do both. It is guaranteed that you will leave with a lightness of spirit that will push you to dance as you, too, "Remember When."

Choreographic Team--Caryl Meredith, Amari di Ricchezi Thomas, Redorange Magic, Kaleki Topaz, Kele Monday, Kiran Sporg, Jennifer Carlucci and Falken Wikentower.

All Performances are free of charge -- We often fill the sim, so please arrive at last 30 minutes early to get your computer set up for the show and to cash the sets and animations. Please keep your scripts under 50. You will be checked as you enter the theater.

“Dance is the hidden language of the soul. There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.” ~ Martha Grahm

THE BRAVE PROGRAM by Medora Chevalier:

1.  NO RED ROSES
The city flows around us. The traffic never ending; the pace unforgiving. Lights speeding past; elevators falling from far above; towers reaching up beyond sight; shadowy figures rushing by.   Where is the human, where does nature break through? If by a miracle a rose grew through the sidewalk it would be crushed and wither. Loneliness rules.

2.  BRING IT
We are ill at ease. Our movements jerky. We wonder what is life. How can we be part. We reach out to interact but there is no true connection, no warmth. All is very odd and cold. We dance alone. Loneliness is what we all share. Our minds are going living this life of lies and loneliness.

3.  THE BRAVE
We hear the call. Voices call us to step up and find our courage. We must face the future of risk and act to change it. We need to commit ourselves, heads, hearts and hands.

4.  MOUNTAIN
The majestic great beasts are coming. What a force of nature! What disruption to the way things are. We climb a spiral path out of the urban jungle and into the clear air of a mountain. Clouds surround us as we reach the peaks. Strange and beautiful things will change us.

5.  VOICES
Our life up in the clear air is full of playfulness and joy. We have so much room to breathe and leap into the sky in dance as we are freed.

6. GET REAL
Mystical forces demand our attention. Dance through all our histories has been sacred and brought us to face deep spiritual challenges.

7.  VOLI
As mystical forces and people join together we are freed from old bonds and, no longer earth bound, we can reach into the skies. We gather our strength in a moment of solemn love and higher purpose.

8.  SING IT
Joyfully determined and happy we move back down the mountain and embracing the move back to earth, Of course there may be shocks along the way!

9. GOING TO  LA
We have returned to the dark urban city - the atmosphere is heavy. We walk the city streets, among the poor and dispossessed, the division between peoples, the lost and the intoxication of despair. It is dark and damp. Rain sweeps our faces. Then the storm breaks - a clearing cleansing storm - sweeping away all the darkness and cruelty - leaving nature and green lushness to arise. The earth is resurgent. Life will return. Humanity rediscovers its connection to the rest of the universe. We are no longer alone. We are green, transcendent, whole.

THE BRAVE - INSPIRATION - DEEP ECOLOGY
Adapted by Medora Chevalier from Joanna Macey

Something important is happening
Something is shifting here
Be glad to be alive!
We are changing visions
Changing lives
It is "the greening of the self.'

Time to stand up
Time to step up
Defending our lives
Defending our Earth

I, the forest giant,  feel the people hug my trunk,
Block the chain saws with their bodies,
Feel their fingers caress my bark
Stop the steel, let me live.

I hear the Brave in their boats
Place themselves between the harpoons and me,
I escape to the depths of the sea.
Give thanks for your life and for mine, and for life itself.

I know we have the power , the power to change
Tree and elephant, whale and bear are not "out there"; they are ourselves

Dangers threaten, overwhelming us.
Our world, as we know it, may come to an end.
It takes courage to stop denying this crisis
Courage to grieve,  a deep response, a deep grief
Courage to smell the burning of the forests
Courage to see the famines of Africa
Courage to hear the voices swept away by flood and war
Courage to see our brothers homeless in our cities
Taking courage , we are no longer puny individuals
We are part of the rain forest, we are the earth protecting itself.

We are the earth  emerged into thought and consciousness
This is the greening of the self.
This is our greening
The green mystical, the green practical,  the green transcendent
The deep interconnectedness of all life
It makes us The Brave

Don't ever apologize for crying
Don't ever apologize for sorrow, grief, the rage that you feel.
It is a measure of your humanity
It is a measure of your open heart
As your heart breaks open it makes room for the world to heal.

The Brave weave their small arcs  in the wider currents and loops of knowing that interconnect us.
Making the  'pattern that connect'
This is the greening of self
