In November we celebrated the realization of of our goal with the most landmark production of our career: a multi-media show, national organizing strategy, and eco-justice tour that obliterated the boundaries between performance and activism! We traveled over 10,000 miles with an all-women crew in a grease-powered bus, delivering "Hurricane Season: the hidden messages in water" to over 8,800 people in more than 50 cities, and featuring 150 community-based organizations to draw vital connections between shared struggles and common solutions in a critical moment in human history.
We are currently turning Hurricane Season into a multi-media curriculum for high school and college students with the help of a team of 7 amazing educators, activist, and artists. And we are translating Hurricane Season into a 2-D multi-dimensional BOOK and DVD!
In 2009 we were honored to perform alongside Alicia Keys, Erykah Badu, Angela Davis, Amiri Baraka, Dead Prez, Speech (Arrested Development), Me'shell Ndegeocello, Toshi Reagan, Goapale, Avery Brooks, Vanadana Shiva, & Mary Robinson (Ireland's 1st female president).
We wrote down the names of many of these gifted genius gurus on the first day of the new year as people we would love to perform with...
innerstand and uphold the power of the word!
We won Best Director at the Reel Sisters of the Diaspora Film Festival for Hurricane Season's video!! One Common Unity recognized us beside Andersen Sa (director, Favella Rising, Brazil) as "Common Folk" from around the world who are creating peace and lasting sustainable change in their communities through education, arts and media.
We were awarded a grant from The Kindle Project which seeks to foster a nexus of creative ideas and cultivators to inspire and support possibilities for change.

We hope your Right Here Right Now finds you basking in an abundance of love, awareness, awakening, passion, presence, expansive peace, limitless grace, and immeasurable blessings, ....and that you are feeling fabulous on this side of the new decade!
