June 2021 – Awakened founder, dancer and designer Xitlali Adame, with support from Universal Basic Resources and The Green House, will host an environmental consciousness event—AWAKENED 2021.
The vision for this event stemmed from a desire to return to our roots in Mother Earth/Nature, through feminine grace, in order to reconnect to the source for a new, conscious lifestyle. It will be a celebration of life through the philosophy and movement of women, with the support of man, for our youth and future generations.
“I feel we need movements like AWAKENED in times where community is needed most—uniting inspiring and empowering while utilizing the arts as conduit to help bring awareness about important causes in the world,” Xitlali says.
The evening will include performances from spoken word artists and empowerment speakers, such as Chet W. Sisk, Bobby LeFebre, Sedona Moreno-Castelena, and more. Xitlali will also perform new dance pieces and showcase fashion designs. Resources will also be available for education, environmental justice, community outreach, self-care and sustainable fashion in order to connect audience members with opportunities for direct action.
AWAKENED 2021 aims to raise awareness and educate regarding the importance of balance in our lives. Live performance serves as its foundation, and thus the creativity and expression present will keep us in harmony with each other and will provide space to reflect on the necessity of our connection with Mother Earth and achieving balance in our lives.
Every creative aspect of the evening is intended to uplift, inspire and inform us on how to overcome both the struggles and reality of this time as a community.
