WIND IN A MIRROR...AYAHUASCA VISIONS
WIND IN A MIRROR...AYAHUASCA VISIONS by Josie Hyde is a boldly original multimedia solo show, a play of irony and paradox about death, guilt and transcendence. The story is a search for enlightenment climaxing in the Amazon in a ceremony with ayahuasca, the visionary Vine of Death. The performance is accompanied by a surreal art video with the music of Tom Lackner and Amazon shamans Don Agustin Rivas Vasquez and Don Jose Campos.
WIND IN A MIRROR...AYAHUASCA VISIONS premiered at the Marsh in San Francisco to a sold-out theater and Josie received a standing ovation.
