Eye of Leo Series: The Gathering

Friday August 26th & Saturday August 27th, 8PM

Joe Goode Annex


Sara Shelton Mann presents the final installment of the Eye of Leo series. Combining the psyches of ten solo events in to the mind and body of Anya Cloud. Mud Loves Love.

This is a gathering of a chorus over time. Some of the parts are missing, some are under the floor boards, some are still waiting to be heard. It is all the aspects of the self that want attention simultaneously – just as the 12th kid comes into the room – just as the sun comes over the mountain.

It is unknown with whom Anya will engage and bring through and what will disappear.  The performance has already occurred, Anya is the architectural sculptor of that which cannot be seen.

Eye of Leo Series:

What is the programer up to?

Sherwood engages with meeting aspects of his desires and how they become convergent travelogues of experience from several points of view. He opens a magic box, sees himself a younger boy filled with aspirations, and an older brother walking into himself and directly through the image into the future. It is a weaving of sorts that cannot be seen as performance except through one’s imagination.

It is the dancer’s attention we are tracking through this journey. This performance process is an engagement of layers pulled out of a suitcase, worn and turned inside out. It could be the way in which we wear our inner nature for all to see without realizing it.

What is it to pull apart the glue of emotions or string them up after a good washing only to ask the sunlight to do what it does for us all?

If Sherwood is 1 – I am Sherwood. 


Eye of Leo Series – C – May 10th and 11th, 2013

“With this work – i present all 3 as 1 and then we see the individuation of 1 into [all] aspects”  — Sara Shelton Mann

The EYE OF LEO – C – New solo Series by Sara Shelton Mann – As performed by Marintha (Mim) Tewksbury, Christine Bonansea and Rachael Lincoln –
Fri.–Sat., May 10th and 11th, 8pm – Joe Goode Annex – 401 Alabama Street (17th Street) San Francisco.

“C” For clown, child, concept, children, criteria, crowd of aspects wanting attention or hidden. C is for clarity.  A 2-day site specific performance at Joe Goode Annex – C is a collaborative triptych of solo performances created with performance artists Marintha (Mim) Tewksbury, Christine Bonansea and Rachael Lincoln, under direction by Sara Shelton Mann with sound by Norman Rutherford and light design by David Szlasa

3 women, different by nature and skill, create a hide and seek game of consciousness and while moving through their given and developed tendencies they create an architecture with the mind, the body, the space. A place where symbols and meaning flow outward and curve back into their bodies as an unspoken language or knowing.

This work functions with both a facade and a transparency as its target. Sometimes a mask cannot be removed. Sometimes a mask may be read as a series of locks and keys into the internal realm of a person.

C is a journey as a puzzle without beginning or end. It is framed in the present with all time condensed. It is a play upon the thoughts of the body/mind in interaction with the other, that part of the hidden personality – whether it be the sound of the feet running, a cough from a witness, a truck screeching to a halt or the wind rattling the windows. And so, we tread lightly into the soft tissue, the underbelly.
