Forces of Nature Dance Theatre

...B Flowin' ...B Smoove!

...B Flowin' ...B Smoove!

Oscillatory in the design of it’s language, “…B Flowin’, . . . B Smoove!” seeks to be a visual metaphor for the elliptical movement of life in the heavens and here on Earth. Inspired by the dynamic, fluid, never ending flow of energy from Supreme Being that animates all, the mythical Damballah and Aida Ouedo, as well as Earl “Snake Hips” Tucker, … Be Flowin’… B Smoove! informs the viewer to move smoothly through one’s problems in life or in essence simply be Smoove. The work honors the spirit and desire within the human family to move smoothly or “smoove” through the obstacles and pit falls in our lives, thus striving to be and remain constant, fluid and whole. We dedicate this piece of ” …B Flowin’…B Smoove!” as a prayer in movement for “family”.

EARTHRITES highlights the “Green Ballets” of Forces of Nature Dance Theatre, under artistic Direction of Abdel R. Salaam, whose commitments to environmental health, spiritually, and the survival of life on earth have been seminal themes of his choreography. In 1989, Forces of Nature presented its first Environmental Arts Gala entitled Eternal Earth. Whether known as GEB, GAIA, or GREEN, the movement to throughout history respect our planet and see it as a Living Being has inspired the work of spiritualists, artists, and scientists alike. Everyday people from all walks of life and different cultures are now working towards a healthier relationship with their terrestrial host. No matter who we are or where we come from, we all seek a higher quality of living for our families, communities, societies and the world at large. Forces of Nature continues to embrace the global movement of the 21st Century by offering “EARTHRITES”, a series of nine concert visions, lecture demonstrations, and creative programs that unite people to engage in Movement To Heal Our Planet.
