The Forest Ball is an invitation to touch the beyond, dive into magical realms, around the ceremonial fire on the wings of the medicine. The week before, a creative space offers a build-up of events and classes for friends to meet their forest creature character, tune in, and manifest the costume for the ball.

Discover & Embody Your Creature
Theatre & Dance day class
Tuesday February 12th
In the morning Theatre class, all are invited to meet their Inner Creature and bring it to life, exploring different forms of expression, with support of tools and techniques from the Alternative Theater movement. The afternoon session will focus on dance and movement… an invitation to explore the finer qualities of our Inner Creatures, coming closer to the subtle details and sensory experience of that being: how is this Creature moving within? A chance to explore what it means to wear a costume, and how this affects dance and movement… allowing Creature and Costume to become one.
Tuesday 12th, Wednesday 13th and Thursday 14th of February
Wild Treats, 11 am to 2.30 pm (all three days)
PachaMama’s box of treasures is opening up to help guide in the making of creature costumes for the Forest Ball ceremony. A space to find basic materials and clothes to get started. Please note: Costumes should be made from nature or re-useable items… please do not bring any plastic or other items into PachaMama for this specific single use – ecological responsibility is always first in mind.
