A ritual.

An offering.

An invocation.

so palpable.

If you seek to experience the marriage and exploration of
ritual and art
you will want to experience Ana’s piece.

A Little Post Script:
Ana has called out to the Naropa community to
contribute a meaningful object to
the alter of the ancestors
which will be on stage and part of Ana’s performance.
There are deposit boxes for your sacred objects
in the student lounge of all three campuses.

See you on the edge!
