Following up on the last year’s popular show Waking the Bear and the standing room only Winter Solstice 2014: In the Northlands, Kari and Lynette plunge more deeply into the theme of Bears and Birches with new insights and a broad performance palate.
They attempt to answer such questions as: Who is the Spinner in the Sky, the lady in blue stockings whose bits of wool fluff fell to Earth? And who is Mielikki, finding this fluff and growing the first bear from it? How do we say hello to spring while winter’s grip is still steady? Will there ever be a need to dance the bear hunt ritual in our time? What are the lessons of the Birch tree, ever useful goddess of trees, in this time of transition?
