It’s May! Happy Mother’s Day!
In the first 12 days of our 60-day #SupportSpiritAndBones campaign we have raised $920 toward our $15,000 goal. THANK YOU to all who have helped spread the word, given during the campaign and throughout this year. These funds support artists of all ages and the creation and presentation of work we believe celebrates the stories, strengths and wonder of many women’s lives.
Special Mother’s Day donor gift:
Many of you have celebrated past Mother’s Day weekends by attending one of our Rocked By Women shows. For everyone who donates before Tuesday, May 15th we’ll send you a private link to view the full performance of our 2015 show at Malonga Casquelourd Center for the Arts in Oakland.
Last week we held a Spirit And Bones dancer audition at ODC. The dancers were incredible at showing their individual abilities and working together. As a way of getting to know the applicants we asked them to write in response to the prompt:
Describe a woman (real or mythical) who is a source of inspiration for you.
Who would YOU write about?
Feel free to share your responses on our Facebook post or your own social media and include us in the conversation by tagging @ sarahbushdance
SBDP celebrated Bay Area Dance Week this year with an Open Rehearsal at Berkeley Art Center. Rose, Joan and Sarah showed some excerpts of choreography and invited attendees to join in on creative process exercises. From the photos we’ve seen, it looks like everyone had a really good time — big huge smiles!
If you live in the Bay Area, mark your calendar for Arts in Action: Represent, Saturday, June 16th, 4-6pm at Berkeley Art Center. Join us for dance and art interpretation with the artists from BAC’s Wonder Women exhibit and Sarah Bush Dance Project. SBDP will create short works inspired by the themes, artworks, and the arrangement of BAC’s current exhibition. Audiences will explore the art through short, guided activities.

In celebration and appreciation of all YOU create and nurture and all who have nurtured you,
Happy Mother’s Day!
Love and thanks,
Sarah and the Spirit and Bones collaborating artists
