BRATTLEBORO -- SOBO invites audiences to travel with the Nomad of Beltane, as multidisciplinary artist Damon Honeycutt celebrates 20 years of experience with a performance on Thursday at 7:30 p.m., at SOBO Studio in the Cotton Mill.
"It is all about the magic of conjuring and the language beyond the word," said Honeycutt.
The evening features several other local artists, including Molly Gawler, Cyndal Ellis, Cai Silver and more.
During Honeycutt’s performance, audiences can expect to see a personal piece that explores the artist’s vacillation between wrath and peace; another segment incorporates the mysteries of the ancient Indian epic, The Mahabarata; and a piece best described as a "duet journey, an invocation of the subtle."
Starting with his training in martial arts and meditation at age 11, Honeycutt sought out and learned under teachers, masters and institutions that help him understand how to bring together the traditional and the contemporary. Honeycutt has performed in more than 20 countries, and the audience will see and hear dances and music he has premiered in the U.S. and abroad.
Honeycutt’s travels have afforded him the opportunity to work with diverse groups from around the globe, including Pilobolus, Crescent Street Films, CalArts, Nai Ni Chen, NEYT, The Burat Wangi Gamelan, New England Center for Circus Arts, New York Chinese Cultural Center, The Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Beijing Opera Company Yuan and others. He has a master’s degree in conscious evolution from The Graduate Institute and a BFA from California Institute of the Arts in music composition.
Admission is $15-20 on a sliding scale, $12 for students. For more information, call 802-258-7378 or sobodance@gmail .com.
