“Forces of Nature”, a constellation of butoh movement and spoken word performances, focuses on new concepts surrounding environmentalism. EcoSomatics, is the idea that creative, strongly embodied presence can help us change how we perceive ourselves as part of nature, recreate our expectations and needs of the earth, and how we show our gratitude. The concept of EcoSex asks us to think of nature not as an all giving mother but rather as a lover, building the kind of intimate relationship with nature that can support us both in reciprocal love. We also explore the healing power of expression, in this ritual of grief, play, and resonation.

2027 NE MLK (enter thru glass doors behind Tiny's coffeeshop) Tix: $5-10 (pay what ya can! No one turned away for lack of funds!) PG time is over! Get a babysitter, put the kids to bed, and come out for a night of adult puppetry you won't soon forget! Jawbone Puppet Theater & Poncili Company present: .SACRED CANDY. Puppets. Big masks. Physical theater. Including the short masterpiece "Fire Hydrant Woman gets Tooken Away," written, designed and directed by the 5-year-old, which culminates in a disemboweled t-rex spewing guts and candies, the show quickly spirals into madness, as two jabbering old ladies try to comfort a crying baby while navigating a bizarre and surreal dystopian future, encountering various amorphous monsters, while a mad carnival barker raffles secrets, and everybody prays to the holy mutant cow in hopes of ending their addiction to candy. Babies will cry, and monsters will lose their shape no matter how many eyes you have to see them. In the midst of all this, our resident potty-mouthed biblical scholar will regale you with the tale of "Genesis, Chapter 38" a funny, dirty retelling of one of the weirder bible stories. Be forwarned: this show contains scenes of graphic puppet on puppet sex--not for the feint of heart. And we also have cheap art for sale--hand made prints, small sculptures, monsters by the kid, comics and much more! Jawbone Puppet Theater is a quirky, potty-mouthed, father-son act from Brooklyn, NY, by way of Taiwan. Poncili Company is a mysterious experimental art collective from Puerto Rico. Together again after our triumphant winter tour, "Dinosaur Saints & Humble Robots," which you can check out here: http://www.facebook.com/DinosaurSaintsHumbleRobots Please check out more pictures and videos of our work here: www.adamende.com and here: Poncilidad.tumblr.com Poncili Creacion : FB And check out 5-year-old Corn Snake's Facebook page to see images of his monster prints and street performance: http://www.facebook.com/cornsnakemonsterprint http://www.facebook.com/events/513548608724080/
