"The artist is a kind of warrior. It takes courage to have people enter your secret chamber and see what is going on there. The creative spirit really needs to be fostered and tended to… The creative spirit is what saves us." ​ Emilie Conrad, Founder of Continuum

Come celebrate BODY and MOVEMENT as part of a planetary process. New performance works by an international cast of artists, SOMAfest features a landscape of dance, film, voice, and live music, that express diverse ways we can creatively experience our interconnected relationship to BODY – EARTH/PLACE – and the GLOBAL COMMUNITY.

SOMAfest artists, curated by Teri Carter, include Carter (LA), Caryn Heilman (NYC), Georgiane Cowan (LA), Camille Maurine (LA), John William Johnson (Portland, OR), Rebecca Bryant (Long Beach), Prairie House Dance (Canada), and others who present kinesthetically charged improvisational and contemporary work infused with sensuality, aliveness and innovation.
