Heart of Chaos

“Life & Death” presented by Heart of Chaos at The Usuals.
Friday Aug.23rd, 2013 7pm-10pm

THEME: Life and Death: An Exhibit of Contrasts

When the energetic force that animates the physical body manifests for all to see and feel.

When the energetic force that animates the physical body withdraws leaving an empty shell with a marked decrease in resemblance to the living organism.

Life is terminal. Death a mystery. Carlos Castañeda’s spiritual teacher Don Juan advised him to keep death on his left shoulder. He meant let an awareness of death inform your life and teach you how to live fully. This exhibit is an exploration of how those two realities intertwine and play off each other in a net of time and space. Join us for a compelling expression of this dynamic dance of contrasts.

– Beats provided by Joe Kidd throughout the evening

– Poetry  by Ruben Alexander Barron, Alyssa Kimiko and Enoc Lira
