In honor of Goddess Cybele, Yvonne will be performing “Ismaouni”, a choreography by Suhiala Salimpour. Ismaouni is a choreography that represents a deep and solid powerful sense of earth and being. With the sound of cymbals and their magical significance in communication with the Goddess Cybele, we honor Cybele, a Phrygian Mother of the Gods.

BLK Celebration 2019 Performer – Melanie presents NATARAJA!

At BLK Celebration’s 2019’s GODLIKE show,

Melanie

will bring us

Nataraja

Mel 1 (1)

Melanie depicts Shiva as Nataraja – Lord of the Dance

 

As depicted in mid-dance in various ancient artworks, Nataraja is the god Shiva in a form where he experiences self-transcendence through dance.

In a ring of fire, Nataraja performs the Tandava, a sacred dance which presents the creation, nurturing, and the ultimate destruction of ALL there is.

  Melanie’s self-choreographed version of this rite is a blend of Bharatnatyam and tribal fusion bellydance.

Melanie frequently performs at various cultural and arts events, and she says that she is honored to bring her art to the stage at GODLIKE for you this year.

BLK Celebration 2019 Performer – Obsidian Fox presents “US”

At BLK Celebration’s 2019’s GODLIKE show,

Obsidian Fox

will manifest

“US”

 

Fox 1

Obsidian Fox captured by The Dancer’s Eye 

“Who are the real monsters?

Society’s outsiders, or our thoughts that lead to society creating these outsiders?

We label them subhuman. These innately human monsters are woven into the fabric of how we think and how we interact.

We take the upper hand and view ourselves as gods, but we are tethered together.

They are US”.

Fox 2.jpg

The GODLIKE show brings us Obsidian Fox from World Dance Orlando!

World Dance Orlando was established in the summer of 2018. Our experienced instructors teach a wide variety of dance styles across the central Florida area including Bellydance, Samba, Polynesian, Bollywood, Fusion, Heels, and much more!

BLK Celebration 2019 Performer – Danielle Boots presents ISIS!

At BLK Celebration’s 2019’s GODLIKE show,

Danielle Boots

will bring us

The Mother Goddess Isis

isis2

Isis has made an appearance at every Black Lotus Kult performance, most recently at BLK Celebration 2018 in Chicago. Kindle Cimmerian’s performance helped illustrate Caroline Wise’s talk “The Blood Red Cord of Isis” (which caused a stir with the TSA, until the Goddess let them know that it was OK).

We are very excited to announce that the Isis-tradition continues through the skills of the lovely and talented Danielle Boots.

In reflecting about Isis, Danielle shared the following,

“She is the epitome of the divine feminine. She is the Protector. She is the Nurturer. She is the lover. She is the strong. She is the wise.  She is the Goddess Isis!”

Isis.jpg

Danielle Boots is a diverse dancer who has been dancing in the Central Florida area for the past 9 years. She loves the beauty, flow and grace of oriental dance, and the strong, luscious fluidity of tribal fusion. Both styles consume her heart whenever she dances. Danielle aims to capture your heart with her performance at GODLIKE – An Evocative Evening, inspired by the Mother, Lover, Protector, Healer – the Goddess Isis.

BLK Celebration 2019 – Michael Staley presents “Austin Osman Spare & Kenneth Grant: Two Magicians”

At BLK Celebration 2019

Michael Staley

will present

“Austin Osman Spare & Kenneth Grant: Two Magicians”

Kenneth Grant first encountered the work of Austin Osman Spare in 1941, coming across The Book of Pleasure. By the time he met Spare in 1949 he had thoroughly steeped himself in Spare’s published work. Spare was then writing another book, and soon Grant was typing drafts for him, editing, and collaborating on some of the material. When Spare died in 1956, he left his manuscripts and papers to Grant. The material was eventually collated and edited in the early 1990s, and published in Zos Speaks! by FULGUR PRESS in 1998.

Drawing on unpublished typescripts and diary entries, Michael discusses Grant’s growing understanding and presentation of Spare across the decades, and the influence of Spare on Grant’s own work.

Michael Staley is the founder of Starfire Publishing. He knew Kenneth Grant for more than forty years, becoming his publisher in the mid 1990s, and across a number of years republished the Typhonian Trilogies in new editions. Starfire also published the lavishly-produced title Two Grimoires by Austin Osman Spare in 2011.

Michael lives in north-west London with his wife Caroline Wise.

BLK Celebration 2019 Performer – Veronica Lynn presents QETESH

At BLK Celebration’s 2019’s GODLIKE show,

Veronica Lynn

will bring us

Qetesh – Goddess of Sacred Ecstasy

Veronica Photographed by Barnacle Media

At this year’s GODLIKE show,  Veronica Lynn will take us back to the Bronze Age, by bringing Qetesh to the stage! Originally a Canaanite deity of love and desire, Qetesh gained popularity in New Kingdom-era Egypt as a goddess of sacred pleasure and fertility. While many depictions of Egyptian deities are in profile, Qetesh is seen facing forward, nude, riding on the back of a lion, with snakes in her left hand and lotus flowers in her right. That’s our kind of goddess!

Veronica Lynn

Based in Austin, TX Veronica Lynn will bring Qetesh to life at our GODLIKE show through a jazzy 1930’s modern dance/showgirl interpretation of this deity.

Veronica is an instructor, performer and costume designer, with a background in tribal fusion dance. She is deeply interested in the incorporation of historic dances and costuming into contemporary dance styles.
