Jewel Tones: Jessica Marasa

Event Type
Event Description

Jewel Tones explores the Buddha’s final instruction ~ “Make of yourself a light.” It investigates this final teaching through an improvisational performance arranged by a single color. It asks movers, musicians, spoken word and visual artists to evoke the energetic tones, textures and attitudes of a selected shade as entry into the unknown. It leaves open the possibility of revealing the unifying happenings of color while seeking to create a basic environment of non-discrimination for all participants. This series asks artists to risk exposing our unknown relationship to being colorful, connected and free. It will be sensational, meaning of the senses and colorful, meaning full of light. Jewel Tones runs the fourth Monday of each month from January to June and is organized by Jessie Marasa.
