Three generations of ceremonial, theater, activist and healing dance, with original music by two of the greatest dance composers, Bonia Shur and C.B. Jackson. Dance jewels include "Birth", "Purses, Pockets and Family Secrets", "Lullaby", "Primordial Round", "Governor's Inaugural-Its a Slow Beginning", "Gesture of Deer", "Crimson Prayer", "Tallit:Prayer Shawl", "Vibrant Souls", "Flight, Fight, Freeze: the Power of Instinct". Each of these masterpieces can be found in full on Fanchon Shur's illuminating website, growthinmotion.org.
This short film flows like a dance, and is meant to give you a sweep of an entire lifetime of an evocative artist, awakening entire audiences into sacred communities, speaking truth to power, tapping ethnic roots, using scaffolding, large ropes, huge balls, and magnificent costumes, to awaken our sacred nature.
