O Privilégio dos Caminhos
Espectáculo, 8 Fevereiro
Santiago Alquimista 21h30
Ron Whitehead, Sarah Elizabeth, Baltazar, Iris, Lucia Loureiro

Inspirado na obra homónima de Fernando Pessoa, «O Privilégio dos Caminhos» leva-nos em viagem, sem destino, na Livre errância de ser o sonho e a estrada.
A poesia de Ron Whitehead encontra a de Pessoa, a voz de Sarah Elizabeth encontra a musicalidade de Baltazar, os récitos da contadora de histórias Lucia ecoam no corpo dançado de Iris, e todos estes caminhos se vão entre-cruzando, ora formando um só, ora libertando-se...

The Bone Man
Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard, progenitor of existentialism and the 19th Century’s leading Christian apologist, proclaimed “Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards.” Norwegian dramatist Henrik Ibsen, father of modern drama who, by the publication of his last play WHEN WE DEAD AWAKEN, in 1899, was the most acclaimed writer in the western world, had an obsession with “the way we are dominated by the past…We sail,” he wrote, “with a corpse in the cargo.” Can anything be more significant to anyone than her or his own history, own life?
From birth to death, there is nothing of more primary significance to each and every one of us than the events of our own lives.
Ron Whitehead approaches writing unlike any other poet or writer. He certainly doesn't follow the "Mental Masturbation" academic approach. In his 2-hour non-traditional workshop Ron takes the participant on a journey to the holy/sexual sacred heart of life, to the heart of writing. Ron shows the way for the poet/writer to find her/his authentic voice. Ron also reveals how to listen (the greatest art of all) and become your own best editor.
Ron Whitehead is a poet, writer, editor, publisher, professor, organizer. He is the author of 18 books and has work on over 20 cds. For more information, including brief bio and Mp3s, visit Ron's official website. www.tappingmyownphone.com.
Cameron Crowe (California): "Ron Whitehead is a genius."
Allen Ginsberg (New York): "Ron Whitehead is energetic Bodhisattvic poetic spirit! Happy to see and read so much poetry energy!"
Hunter S. Thompson (Colorado): "I have long admired Ron Whitehead. He is crazy as nine loons, and his poetry is a dazzling mix of folk wisdom and pure mathematics."John Tytell (New York): "Ron Whitehead reminds me of Corso...early Yeats in the Celtic Twilight...Ferlinghetti...Ginsberg...spontaneous transcription emerging in a tumultuous rush...infused with Whitehead's belief in the magical transformations implicit in poetry, with the music of the poem serving as chant, incantation, ultimately pagan prayer...the same can be said for the poetry rants (Insomniacathons) Whitehead has been organizing around the country, non-stop marathon readings."

A experiência da voz e do círculo: trabalho de canto

10 Fevereiro, Santiago Alquimista

"what was taken from us
and what were we taken from"
Sarah Elizabeth Whitehead
from "When The Redbuds Bloom"

Where is home? Why do we spend so much of our lives searching for,
yearning for home, for our ancestors? What do we know about the circle, the interconnectedness of all life? What do we understand? What is
most important to us and why? Is there anything we can do to make a difference in this pain and suffering filled world? Can we experience joy and happiness? If so how? Edgar Cayce said "music is the language of angels." Is music, song, a path that enables us to find our way home?
Sarah Elizabeth Whitehead explores these and other questions born of broken hearts, broken loves, broken ancestries, and broken homes in her powerful and heart-rending 2-hour HOMESICK presentation/workshop. Combining many Native American and Mountain songs with stories and poems Sarah takes the listener/participant on a journey to the heart of the soul, the heart of Mother Earth, the heart of being and understanding. She guides us to the path of remembrance of connection.

Sarah Elizabeth Whitehead is a singer, songwriter, musician (11 instruments), poet, writer, teacher, healer. She has performed in 16 countries in the past 3 years.
Her Cherokee name translates to Soft Walks, She Who Walks Softly on Mother Earth leaving deep healing soul-filled energies.
"America's precious roots music, in all its variety, has inspired people around the world. Now we have a young ambassador for the timeless treasures of the rural southern styles from Kentucky. Rather than being an anthropologist with a magnifying glass, tape recorder and a bottle of formaldehyde to incarcerate the music, Sarah Elizabeth is a mesmerizing young performer with a gorgeous voice who comes from the places she sings about. Sarah Elizabeth's mountain voice is like a Druid spirit summoning up the spirits and hants. She is a natural, and just what the music world needs, a fresh pure unjaded voice in the Wilderness."--David Amram, world music composer, New York (www.davidamram.com)
"Sarah Elizabeth’s voice always sounds amazing and true."--Jim James, My Morning Jacket (www.mymorningjacket.com)
