JEAN & TERRY:

YOUR GUIDES THROUGH DARK, LIGHT, NEBULOUS

JEAN & TERRY:

YOUR GUIDES THROUGH DARK, LIGHT, AND NEBULOUS

Show More

We are perceivers. We are an awareness. We are not objects. We have no solidity. We are boundless. The world of objects and solidity is a way of making our passage on Earth convenient.

 – Don Juan Matus

in Carlos Castaneda's Tales of Power

When the mundanity of everyday life crashes into psychic phenomena it helps to have a guide.

Jean & Terry are a housewife and her spirit guide. They are alter egos for a neurotic choreographer and her zen-ed out collaborator, a pair of mountains, and a team of gods who smile from above. They are me and they are you.

In their new experimental play and self-described form of psychic activism, choreographers and performing artists Melissa Krodman and Kelly Bond peer with a curious and open third eye into ideas of the Universal Consciousness. The performers stage their attempts at seeking one-ness, achieving telepathy, elevating our collective vibrational frequencies, and acknowledging the impossibility of it all. Set against a journey across the astral plane, Jean & Terry asks us to consider what we are made of and what, if anything, separates us.

Of thought grew a mountain.

And this mountain grew a man.

Man began to climb the mountain.

And the mountain ate the man.
