In a time of pandemics and uprisings, Life Born of Fire arises from the ashes. Complicated, unfinished, unfurling. What insists on blooming forth. What raw, real gifts are we carrying from ancestors — towards descendants and for ourselves, our weary bodies, our lovely hearts.
After our first sold out site-specific performance in 2022, Life Born of Fire returns at The Southern Theater with more stories, poems, songs and ritual that invite the audience to be together to hold the grief and the healing, the breaking and mending.Created and performed by:
Sandra Agustin, Walken Schweigert, Suzanne Victoria Cross, Ellen Marie Hinchcliffe, Johanna Keller Flores, Lisa Marie Brimmer, Darren Johnson (film), Sir Curtis Kirby III, Angelica Bello Ayapantecatl, Jennifer Elizabeth Cortez, Nathan Allan Berglund
With additional Songs & Music by Sharon Day, Rebecca Nichloson and The Muatas.
