"Message for the Millennium" Performance
Combining stunning visual art, music, dance and theater, “Message for the Millennium”
told the story of our common spiritual journey in the condensed
language of art and myth. The inspiring pageant of evolution
began in the timeless realm ‘before the beginning’,
and evoked the soul’s memory of this primordial realm.
The “Message for the Millennium” performance,
and the events which surrounded it- a month long exhibition,
an artist residency and workshops for the community- embodied
the purpose of Awakening Arts. This multi-modality approach
affirms the role of art in the new millennium; as a vehicle
for collective inspiration.
From creative director Dana Lynne
"Art has a noble role in the evolution of humanity.
It is no longer sufficient for the artist to express the darkness
or to show that we are lost. It is time for all artists, and
the artists we all are, to claim the far more difficult and
heroic task of finding the light and showing the way. In ancient
times the artists served as shamans and visionaries for the
entire community, they created the sacred spaces of inspiration
and revelation. It is time to rediscover this act of community
and nourish its evolution.
In my artwork, and in this performance, I have sought to
explore and reveal the inner realms; the Eternity beyond infinity
that is the source of our Being and the destiny of our Evolution.
In the past few decades we have discovered thousands of galaxies
previously beyond the reach of our vision. As our “depth
perception” expands outwardly in the increasingly vast
parameter of our vision, so may it also increase inwardly
to the remembrance of Eternity. Within us is a greater vastness
than any outer expanse.”
Message for the Millennium was performed in 2000 and 2001
at the Northern California Center for the Arts and St. Joseph’s
Cultural Center in Grass Valley as well at San Dominica in
San Anselmo California.
