Mythology's MYTHING LINKS / COMMON THEMES: Sacred Theatre & Dance

Liturgical Dancer, Carla De Sola (From The Spirit Moves, published by The Liturgical Conference, 1977) November 1998, Author's Note, continuing....... I was fortunate enough to have Carla among my friends on the Lower East Side of New York City during the 1960's and 1970's. The first time I saw her, she was dancing the "Magnificat" during a crowded Mass at St. Brigit's Church. Tears ran down my face as I watched -- and I never again saw dance in the same way. Carla, simply, opened the gates. As a recent Catholic convert, she knew that reincarnation was considered heresy, yet she told me once that when she was dancing at a Eucharistic Conference in Philadelphia one year in the 1970's, she was swept into ecstasy and knew in every fiber of her being that she had been dancing like that for thousands of years. If you've ever seen her dance, you'll know what she meant. She totally manifested the joy of dance. [July 2001 addendum: in 1974 Carla founded the Omega Liturgical Dance Company , which was given a home at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine {click on "Arts"} in New York City. She currently teaches dance and Omega Peace Arts at the Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, California, where she founded another dance company, Omega West .] http://www.az.com/~katrinat/heart/claybea3.htm

The opening quote from Carla De Sola is striking, as is a rich, lengthy, well researched 1997 paper by Merlla McLaughlin, "Sensing the Sacred by Dancing the Divine," that you can click on -- if you have the time, I highly recommend reading this one. http://www.ravenrecording.com/workshop.html
