Named after a German word that loosely translates as shock, bewilderment, or impact, this “rare and staggering” (The Globe and Mail, Toronto) dance-theater hybrid addresses the failure of language in the face of emotional suffering.

What To Do In Berkeley This Weekend #5: Spring Equinox Drum Circle
6:00 PM / Sunday, March 12
The Sacred Stream Center
View Website: Our drum circles are held four times a year on the solstices and equinoxes. The focus of our circles is on healing for individuals, the community, and the earth. Ours is the longest running drum circle in the San Francisco Bay Area, having started in 1998. The format for the circle includes calling power, drum circle meditation (or journey), healing circle and closing circle. Please note that this is not a jam or free form drumming (except for the calling of power). We follow an ancient practice of altering consciousness using a repetitive beat. There are no counter beats, harmonies, or melodies.
