All Souls Contra Dance Tucson
October 31, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm MST$5 – $25
Inspired by Dia de los Muertos and Tucson’s own All Soul’s Procession we are featuring our second annual All Souls Contradance. This will be a contradance just as any other, so if you just want to come and dance, great. However we would like to invite you to use this dance as an opportunity to celebrate the lives of our loved ones who have passed. You can participate in whatever way suits you; wear costume, pin a picture of a loved one on yourself, bring a photo or object to place on the altar. We’ll provide an urn for our mementos, prayers, messages, and remembrances. These will be added to the Urn at the All Souls Procession where, at the Finale, the Urn is burned, and our collective hopes, prayers, love, grief, memories, tributes, and remembrances are consumed bythe flames and dissolve into the ether.
Live music by the Privy Tippers, 0ne of the Southwest’s premier contra dance band. Beginners’ lesson at 6:30.
Events may be viewed in these formats: list, week, day, map, photo and month.
