Who can believe it’s almost been a year since our last festival? It didn’t seem that far ago since we were dancing to the rhythm of steel drums from the Rainbow Girls, gazing in awe at the visual works of art from influences such as Aramis Hamer, and stopping ourselves from accompanying Mari Soul and Animals of Grace on stage. Well, if you missed out, it’s okay. We’re back again for the 7th Annual Isis Women Arts Festival on Saturday, May 14th. This time we are setting up the stage at the Northwest African American Museum in Seattle. Join us for an evening of dance, music,poetry, breathtaking art, and more. Doors open at 7:30pm. See you there! Oh and how could we forget: Admission is free.
Philippa Myler, a 2015 Isis Women Arts Festival paticipant, is thrilled to announce WORK//LIFE, 8pm March 18-19th at Velocity Dance Center.
Ktisk Contemporary Dance which Myler is a member presents an evening of new works inspired by the struggles of balancing work, life, and art.

Ktisk Contemporary Dance is an eclectic fusion of modern, ballet, and jazz movement vocabularies. Ktisk seeks to push the body’s physical and mental limits by connecting movement, story, and emotion, diverging from pure technique and driving toward theatrically-based performance art.
