What inspires you? Or put another way, when you are out of ideas or energy or joy, what or who do you look to for inspiration? Or put another way, are you thanking your lucky stars to be surrounded by so many incredible artists who shine with beauty and power and an extremely weird wonderful rebellious super freaky energy that makes you feel rich and hopeful about the world just knowing they exist?
I hope you'll come to my show, The Major Arcana, at Salvage Vanguard Theater 8/23-8/25 and discuss these things with me!
The Major Arcana tells the story of Annie's long and sometimes troubling relationship with tarot cards. While the symbology of the tarot has served her well as a guide to spiritual, emotional, and intellectual growth, it has also been an aggravating and terrifying companion empowering the most fearful and annoying aspects of her personality. Her story is part comic meditation on magical thinking, mental illness, and sordid spiritual seeking, and part earnest investigation into the fundamental and ridiculous mysteries of being.
