FLAM CHEN returns to ARCOSANTI for a one night only performance of RITES OV SPRING.
“This is the assembly of life that it took a billion years to evolve, It has eaten the storms – folded them into its genes – and created the world that created us. It holds the world steady.” —E.O. Wilson
RITES OV SPRING has been a repertoire piece for FLAM CHEN since 2000. Partial homage to Martha Graham fused with the fascination of microscopic bugs life- RITES VO SPRING is ever changing, always relevant and completely at home inside the fluid line structures of Paolo Soleri. Rites OV Spring explores the inner workings of the hive and the tension of those structures. Incorporating aerial acrobatics, fire dancing and other worldly stilt creatures — WE witness the death of the old queen and the founding of a new colony.
Flam Chen is excited to vibrate another stupendous performance piece at Arcosanti. The experience is always astounding and transformative!
Come out and support Flam Chen as they leap out of state on a Mid West Mini Tour to bring Rites OV Spring deep inside the country!
The performance is tomorrow, Saturday, August 11, 2012, @8 pm.
$20 general admission, $10 for Lasagna Dinner (served at 6 pm, reservations suggested 928-632-6217).
