Peak Bloom

a digital event

We ask you to join us in this spring ritual of blooming. You can write about the sunshine or about your anger, burn your offering in a window box or a meadow, film and share your participation on social media, or do it for just yourself and the dirt. Join us in the labor it takes to flower.

#WeldersEarth #PeakBloom

Peak Bloom, created by Nina Budabin McQuown & DeLesslin George-Warren with contributions from Eric Swartz & Annalisa Dias, is a "mushroom" performance as part of phase one of the earth, that is sufficient.

Live now.

Lucy's (the australopithecus) bones have been shipped to 3 different places across the globe. In this fragmented state she awakens to find an unfamiliar upside down world. She tries to find her way home, calling on creeks and rivers to guide her. Will she find the place she is looking for?


Join us in a contemplation on the erosion of land, bodies, and boundaries, as we, like Lucy, try to navigate an uncertain future shaped by the climate crisis.
Erode/Return, created by and featuring mia susan amir, Cecilia Cackley, and Sanam Emami, is a "mushroom" performance as part of phase one of the earth, that is sufficient.
