FROM GIRLHOOD THROUGH ELDERHOOD
CREATING ROOMS OF OUR OWN
Rites of Passage is a living museum,
a live + virtual house of belonging,
and a movement celebrating women.
Each room in the house, represents a stage or theme of initiation in women's lives
from birth to death, using ritual, art and performance.
Together, we are housing
the Collective Female Soul.
I Never truly acknowledged the fact that I was female until about the 2nd room, and realized maybe its not so bad as I thought."

UPCOMING in August 2021!
OUR COLLECTIVE FUTURE DEPENDS
ON THE STORY WE TELL
Shaping this new story involves a Re-Vision of the Feminine
and a Declaration of it.
As women, we are on the forefront of change as storytellers and weavers
of Life, Death + new Life - able to wield immense power
when we join together with wisdom + compassion.
The first live performance
of Rites of Passage
took place in 2013
in Pittsfield, MA
in a historic Women's Club.
A second live performance
- 20/20 VISION -
is now planned for the
SUMMER OF 2021
focusing on the lives of
women of color.
Collaboratively created by women from diverse backgrounds and ethnicities,
Rites of Passage is a living, breathing invocation
for the healing of our lineages, the weaving of our many colors
and a fertile future for the generations to come.
Join the movement...
Creativity is not a solitary movement. That is its power. Whatever is touched by it, whoever hears it, sees it, senses it, knows it, is fed. A single creative act has the potential to feed a continent. One creative act can cause a torrent to break through stone."
