    The Ballet, Dance of Nature, Sound of Creation, was created for this celebration of Norooz. With choreography by Sharlyn Sawyer of Ballet Afsaneh and music composed by Mohammad Nejad of Nejad World Music center, this exquisite dance honors the powerful Goddess Anahita, the Mother Goddess.

    In Persian mythology Anahita rules the waters and the fertility of the earth. Her sacred animals are the peacock and the dove. In this performance the ancient icons are portrayed, along with the folk dance of the Gilan region in present day Iran, a region known for its agricultural bounty. The celebration of Norooz marked the first day of the year in historic times. It is a celebration of our renewed hopes, the dream of a world at peace, and in harmony with nature.

    The Way That We Rhyme: Women, Art & Politics

    Bay Area - San Francisco Friday - March 28, 2008     08:00 PM

    The Way That We Rhyme: Women, Art & Politics
    Curated by: Berin Golonu
    Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, SF
    First Floor Galleries
    Mar 29 – Jun 29, 2008

    Organized by YBCA, this exhibition showcases the politically charged work of a new generation of women who use creativity as a form of empowerment and a means for making social change. Emphasizing performativity, collaboration and coalition building, the artworks spotlight the daring of women who unapologetically assert themselves, and project their identities out into the world to address a range of issues from the personal to the global. While the works are influenced by the feminist ideologies and activist movements of the past, including the anti-war, pro-choice and environmental movements of the 60s and 70s; the gendered, multi-cultural identity politics of the 80s; and the rebellious Riot Grrrl punk music movement of the 90s; they also speak loudly and clearly to the issues facing women right now. Adhering to the notion that there is strength in numbers, The Way That We Rhyme culls together work from women of differing backgrounds and disciplines to highlight the common goals of their practices.

    Artists include: Lisa Anne Auerbach, Andrea Bowers, Nao Bustamante, Tammy Rae Carland, Vaginal Davis, Eve Fowler with Math Bass, Deborah Grant, MK Guth, Taraneh Hemami, Miranda July and Shauna McGarry, LTTR, Leslie Labowitz and Suzanne Lacy, Aleksandra Mir, Laurel Nakadate, Shinique Smith, subRosa, SWOON and Tennessee Jane Watson, The Counterfeit Crochet Project organized by Stephanie Syjuco, The Toxic Titties, Jessica Tully, and RiotGrrl zines from the Independent Publishing Resource Center, Portland.
