Usher Age of Aquarius on Denman

You’re welcome at the Denman Community Hall on

Nov. 11 (yes, 11/11/11) to usher in the Age of Aquarius.

To celebrate this glorious moment in time and space we will gather and sing our hearts out with the movie Hair. Some of you may remember this successful, sold-out event when we presented it at the Abbey in 2007.

This film came out in 1979, based on the Broadway musical that rocked the nation and shocked audiences with a nude scene. The story is a powerful tribute to the spirit of the late 1960s cultural revolution including music, race, class  and war.

Audience members are encouraged to dress up in your finest hippy duds and sing along for a total interactive experience.  Augmenting the action on the screen will be dancers (Methuselah Dancers, Laurie Montemurro, Cathy Stoyko and friends), Hula Hoopla hula hoopers, Hari Krishnas and the Age of Aquarius choir.  The lyrics will appear on the big screen, enabling all to join in.

This is a family event (alcohol-free) and a fundraiser for the Denman Island Memorial Society (DIMS) who are working very hard to establish a green cemetery on the island. Progress is being made but there are many hoops to jump. What a fun way to support this group.

Tickets are $15 in advance, $5 for children (under five free) and, $20 at the door. Tickets are on sale at Bop City Records in Courtenay and at the D.I. General Store. Admission by donation after 10 p.m.

Keeping in mind that this is a fundraiser and people are welcome to donate more, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.  The doors will open at 7:30 p.m., the movie to  commence at 8. Refreshments will be available before and after the film showing. The sing-a-long movie is timed for off-islanders to connect with ferries and, the hall is within walking distance to the ferry.

After the movie portion of the evening. Lasqueti DJ The Beat Farmer will take us on a musical journey and have us movin’ and groovin’ into the Age of Aquarius!

At 11:11 Taiya Curle will share an intentional dance and lead a prayer circle to mark our entry into a new cycle. Together we will offer our intentions and awaken to the truth of love, peace and hope, then carry on dancing into the night.

We hope to see the Denman Island Community Hall packed that night  with psychedelic  tie dyes, flower children and love.
