ep·och ~ /ˈepək/
a period of time in history or a person's life, typically one marked by notable events or particular characteristics.
the beginning of a distinctive period in the history of someone or something.
The times we are living in are truly epoch. Humanity is at a crossroads. A global pandemic, white supremacy, state violence in Black and Brown communities, exploitative capitalism, inequities, injustices and climate devastation are some of the major challenges of these times. Failure to heal these devastations means continued violence and further loss of life for both people and planet. What will it take? How can we shift from an extractive, hyper-individualistic, and consumption based civilization to one that is ecological, community oriented and life-affirming?
This performance, Epoch, is an endeavor to reflect on this crucial time and hopefully, to inspire a shift in consciousness. Through the body, poetry and storytelling we explore both human and ecological resilience as well as our capacity for transformation. How can we live in greater balance and harmony with the earth and each other? What can that look like? What are new models, how do we implement them? Are we up to the challenge? Can we rise?
