Art holds the power to alter our sense of reality, sense of self, and sense of possibility.
Very few artists, however, wield this power with an intention to better the world one dance floor at a time. Our guests for this episode of the podcast do wield that power and are calling in that better world through music and theater.
Welcome to Adventures Through The Mind, Kalya Scintilla and Eve Olution – aka Eve and Yaegon.
“This incredible duo sets the stage for an intentional future ancient ritual with mythic expression to create a kinesthetic tapestry to scintillate your being awake. World fusion beats manifest into visceral living archetypes that come to life before you, the pulsing vibrations cascade infinite ripples of geometric harmonies throughout the dance floor, and together we are danced into the nectar of celebrating life. In the sacred union of both crystalline sound architecture and the unique style of embodied ritual theatre, Kalya Scintilla & Eve Olution invite your soul into an alchemical experience of divine art devoted to the heart.” [source]
We feature Eve and Yaegon on the show to talk about the transformative power of music, theater and dance in the context of ancient technologies, mythology, and magic. We also share a thoroughly grounded discussion about cultural appropriation, the history of domination across cultures, the challenge of being a successful woman in a sexist industry, and the life-giving potentials of monogamous partnership.
A huge thanks for their permission to use the music you heard/will hear in this episode. See below for links to where you can listen to more.
*** If you have noticed this write up is much shorter than normal, it is because I have prepared all the shows to release prior to my speaking tour in Europe this summer. Reducing the write-up was an essential means of achieving this goal. They will pick up again in the autumn. Check me out on tour!
