Compass Area Spotlight: Crossroads

The journey through life is signified by beautiful convergences of fate. As each of us approaches a new crossroad, we stand at the precipice of a decision: to meet others along the way or to go it alone. There’s a lot to be gained by taking on a festival mission solo but by choosing the former, we create opportunities to exchange ideas and values — to share pieces of ourselves. When our journeys collide, fantastic moments to connect and self-expand arise. And, when you open your heart, all the universe conspires to provide for you. As part of our Compass theme this year, Lightning in a Bottle’s Crossroads area celebrates the natural collision of cultural exchange with a focus on global music and dance. Since the earliest days of man, dance has been one of the most exciting forms of human expression with unique styles developing in cultural pockets across the globe. At the Crossroads, you’ll have the chance to engage in an ecstatic exchange of energy by joining us for a series of eclectic dance workshops and panels that set out to connect the corners of the world. More details below.
