Station On Jasper Presents Shakti Rising.
Shakti Rising is a powerful, multidisciplinary, paradigm-shifting performance showcasing the talents of 30 female artists from Edmonton. The show is an embodied performance of song, dance, spoken word poetry, live hip hop, clowning, burlesque, electronic sound weaving, live music, tantric feast, flow arts and interactivity with our audience.
A testament to the new paradigm, Shakti Rising serves as a potent model for what occurs when women collaborate, celebrate and express together, rather than compete against one another. A magnetic account of the female experience, the Shakti Showcase delves into the topics of ceremony, sensuality, confidence, strength and equity. We acknowledge the magic of strength in connection. Together we rise.
