Community agreements to support a space where we can feel free to surrender, release, feel & express without judgment, and to show up in your wholeness ❤
Music & Movement:
The music will ramp up from a slow introduction to an energetic peak, then smoothly come back down the mountain and return to the ocean of calmness. We encourage you to dance freely, release pent-up energy, and find serenity in movement. Whether you’re a seasoned dancer or new to ecstatic dance, this event welcomes everyone to express themselves authentically.
Requiem Witch is a musician, producer, DJ and audio engineer based in Pittsburgh, PA. Using her extensive education, mixing expertise, and classical flute training, she has been able to craft original music that expresses a part of her that has been digging and clawing to get out. With her recent original releases, remixes and DJ mixes, she takes listeners on an emotional journey from deep, heavy bass, nature sounds from around the world, glitchy drum grooves and mind bending synths, to a symphony of heart breaking flute melodies.
Steve Knots is a musician, producer and DJ with family roots going back more than 100 years in Pittsburgh. He’s spent the last 25 years making original music, DJ’ing, traveling, and working as a live sound engineer. Now he’s evolved past clubdrug events into the sacred bass genre where music and medicine overlap. His DJ sets combine electronic beats, deep bass, and organic sounds from drums, flutes, Nature, and voices in many languages.
