BELTANE: (aka The Great Marriage, aka May Day) n. : A pagan fertility rite in honor of the magic of Spring, specifically, a celebration of the merging of Female and Male energies, Earth Goddess and Sun God. It’s the consummation of Divine Love in the Universe.
This is a cabaret. A performance. A ceremony. A pagan bacchanal. A culmination of primal experiences set to music. The backdrop – a sultry spring evening. The finale – a dance party of epic proportions.
The Wedding Feast is a theatrical exploration of themes such as: Marriage of all sorts. Love, both carnal and contemplative. Reimagined rituals for modern times. Sexual assault and boundaries. The union of the masculine and the feminine within us all. And maybe even a Menstrual Myth or two… All the deep and clandestine roots of the human experience. We’re digging them up for you to bare witness. Though shadow puppets. Through dance and music. Through jokes and laughter and stories so personal that even the bones of our ancestors are blushing.
The Wedding Feast has been imagined, created and directed by Ritual Theatre extraordinaire Ms. Mardi Magoo, with accompanying musicians and performances by The Modern Mystics.
*Rated PG-13 – for lots of cussing, adult themes and a little artsy nudity
