Northey Street City Farm
Friday 18 December 6:30 pm – 10 pm
This boutique cabaret will offer lucky ticket holders a special evening of soul filled entertainment.
Derek Sandy will offer guests a welcome and solo Didgeridoo performance to call respect and acknowledgement to First Nations Communities and sacred land.
The Summer Solstice Ceremony will connect participants strongly to the elements present and use candlelight and the making of a community mandala lantern sculpture, to mark the transition of the Sun from the longest day of the year.
Please bring your drums, singing bowls, flutes and musical instruments to celebrate the peak of Summer Solstice and write your personal affirmations or calls for environmental action to the tree of life.
Dynamic new duo Kairos Kin are Blue MC (ex The Potbelleez) and Kazm (ex Dubmarine) who draw from a range of musical genres focused on elevated lyrics and harmonies.
There will be free permaculture workshops, free earth arts for the kids, and some delicious organic food and iced cool beverages for you to enjoy a relaxed evening under the fig trees with your family.
We are capping numbers to make this a small boutique cabaret and you must purchase tickets prior to the event. Early bird prices close October 31st. Although kids are free, they must get a free ticket so we can monitor our numbers for covid safe planning. Any additional donation money will go towards providing opportunities for artists and performers to participate in free events at the farm in the future.
Ticket/s can be found HERE.
More about the Ceremony:
The Summer Solstice Ceremony will include a cacao and dance ritual by Adrian Mornay. Originally celebrated as a food of the gods from the Amazon Basin, a cacao elixir will be served, giving ourselves the opportunity to enter into the stillness and wisdom of our being. This journey will offer a space to develop self-awareness, be moved by deep emotions, expand your intuitive awareness and align your actions with your intentions. The session starts with an intention setting, followed by a set of somatic exercises to induce a state of relaxed awareness or trance, and prepare for the dance journey. Our sonic journey is a fusion of world music, electronica, dubstep, tribal house, classic remixes and more! In this space, all are welcomed into radical self-expression and acceptance.
We look forward to seeing you at this boutique event.
