Salt Palace Convention Center

In homage to Sparky T. Rabbit
In memory of Deborah Ann Light
Drawing from several different contemporary and historical Pagan paths, this performance features costumed performers wearing stunning leather masks created by artist Lauren Raine, each embodying one of 13 goddesses from around the world. Incorporating music and singing, chant, narrative, dance, and direct interaction with attendees, this offering speaks in its own way to the issues of climate change and care for creation, as well as to other current cultural concerns. Indigenous, ethnic, and historical faces of goddesses express respect for women and Nature, and can bring an experiential awareness of the divine feminine.
Conceived and designed by M. Macha NightMare, written by Mary Kay Landon, Aline “Macha” O’Brien, Lee Henrikson, and Holli S. Emore. Featuring songs by Paula Walowitz, Greg Johnson, and Hollis Payer.
Featuring Vivianne Crowley, Lauren Raine, Maggie Beaumont, Jo Carson, Rowan Liles, Anna Korn, Linda “Faelind” Slack, Holli Emore, Heather Greene, Áine Anderson, Wendy Griffin, Diana Kampert, Eileen Dev Macholl, Jerrie Hildebrand, Mana Youngbear, Ruth Barrett, and Jeffrey Albaugh, among others.
