“I started calling that girl back. The girl who loved living, the girl who danced instead of walking. The girl who had sunflowers for eyes and fireworks in her soul. I started playing music again, hoping she would come out. I started looking for beautiful moments to experience, so she would feel safe enough to show herself, because I knew she was in there. And she needed my kindness and my effort to come to the surface again.” – s.c. lourie
This event is a call. A call for that girl to return. A call to you to show up for her and celebrate. This evening has been created for women and is about joy inducing entertainment, celebration, dance, movement, music, great company and the rise of voices. Voices that have been silent for too long. On April 8th we will be walking through experiences, stories, watching magical, awe inspiring Aerial arts and listening to raised voices that elevate our soul.

Note from the Producer
– This evening is going to be FUN and honestly that is the goal, fill this life up with more joy. This team is absolutely exceptional – I am so excited for you to see some of the new, creative pieces designed for this night. We’re bringing the room to life with 4 separate performance locations – this means that there will be aerialists not just from the stage, but also throughout the room and will create great viewing for all tables. It all comes together with exceptional hosts, live vocals and poetry. The name of this show, Shades of Woman, emphasizes the many faceted Woman, somewhat the removal of the title of who or what we are and the embracing of all of the shades, in all their glory. You will laugh, dance, breathe, possibly cry, enjoy a playlist that is speaks to the soul, eat, drink and most important of all have the opportunity to watch other women rise. And trust me, these rising women are worth it. Grab your girlfriends, get a table and we’ll see you there. – Janessa Marshall, The Forum
