A night like no other!! Two sweeping narrative ecstatic dance sets from beloved DJ’s bookend a midnight feast of live performance and nourishing snacks. Read on, for this night invites you and yours to play and co-create in ways both new and old.

After 10pm, the rules of our reality will change. We’ll invite the greatest ecstatic connection by dropping English language and communicating solely through dance, gesture, and pure sound. We invite you to come ready to embark on your own dance ceremony with powerful intention, as we weave meaning and spontaneous ritual together. Costumes and props welcome, if they allow you to invoke your mythic worlds all the more fully!

~Đår Sernoff, the main curator behind Living Prism, brings an arsenal of immersive sounds from across the universe to inspire a powerful journey into the depths of our heart.

~The Onedoorland Family Band, led by Elijah Parker, features a multi-instrumental forest of sounds intended to take you deeper into your own inner worlds, as you open to the synergenius magic of collective connection.

~Mr. Moo is a producer, DJ, musician, designer, inventor and professional oddball from Portland, OR. Don’t let the gnome hat fool you, Mr Moo is here to create serious music. Like, classically-trained violin serious. Hours of manipulating acoustic, live, and recorded sound from all over the world serious. Dance till your face hurts serious. Bass so sacred it could perform your wedding ceremony serious. Live, intuitively, harmoniously-crafted loops and samples and deedleebloops that will make your soul cry serious.

…but then again, he *does* wear the gnome hat.
