Event description

Description

The dancers of Wild Heart, choreographer Kat Gurley, and composer Kendall Perry come together this April for their second collaborative production, The Beloved. This follows the success of their debut production, The Vulnerable Cure in the fall of 2016. The Beloved calls to us with a warm breeze and heralds as loudly as the drums that dance our feet. Here there is a lifetime of music to be written and praises to be danced. The Beloved is waiting: pulling us into this very moment and toward our truest potential. All we have to do is say, "YES".

The Beloved has quietly entered our hearts and forgotten to close the door. Our new tenderness exposes the source of this breach. We catch our breath in surprise as if to say, “How did you get in here?” Then we hear the gentle call in each moment to love more than just ourselves. This breach was welcomed in some small part of ourselves; deep down we know that it is only through invitation that The Beloved gets in. We know this from experience: our inception itself was an invitation to dance. This cosmic play of our cells and sinew is a call that we answered. Now that we have let The Beloved in, one question remains, “Are we willing to dance?”


If to say it once

If to say it once

And once only, then still

To say: Yes.

And say it complete,

Say it as if the word

Filled the whole moment

With its absolute saying.


Later for “but,”

Later for “if.”

Now

Only the single syllable

That is the beloved,


That is the world.
