A nature walk style music and dance installation Inception: ETHOS Episode II is the second iteration of the ETHOS project that reflects on humanity’s ancient and ancestral relationships to nature.

The pandemic has been teaching us to appreciate the ordinary moments of our lives and to reflect on what matters most to us, including just being, moving, and breathing. With Inception, I will invite audience members on a 105-135-minute aesthetic and physical inquiry about an ideal ethos of humanity and how it is perceptible through movement and the way of being. This project envisions the intangible and invisible ETHOS into the tangible and visible.

The ETHOS performers: Tuli Bera, Lesley Keller, Amanda Maraist, Danielle Ross, Darling Shear, Aaliyah Christina, Xochyl Perez, Maryam Salem. We will be joined by musicians Michael Zerang and Mabel Kwan.
