“Celebration of Life!” – a dance-percussive-art “Happening” – features Sticks & Stones healing ritual artist Judith Z. Miller’s primal wearable art and sculpture made from trees and stones, set to a live soundscape of global rhythms by Music for the Masses DJ Neva Wartell, in Park Slope’s lush St. Marks/Warren Street Community Garden.

The event will be held on Sunday, Sept. 11, 2011. Admission is free and open to the public.

“Celebration of Life” will include dancers in body paint wearing Judith’s handmade, one-of-a-kind amulets, moving throughout the garden with her “Sacred Staffs” made from the roots and trunks of trees. Dancers will be accompanied by music spun by DJ Neva along with live percussion. The community will be invited to participate.

Dancers are invited to honor the earth by creating movement in response to the song “MANKIND” by MAURI, accompanied by live music. The song may be heard and downloaded at this link:
