S.C.A.R.S. (STRENGTH, COURAGE, AND RESILIENCE OF THE SOUL) Inspired by the Buddhist concept of “turning poison into medicine” and Kintsugi, a Japanese pottery technique in which a broken object is repaired with gold lacquer, S.C.A.R.S. combines multidisciplinary arts and cross-cultural exchange to foster healing and empower- ment through community service, work- shops, and dance multi-media films. The films highlight our “scar” stories, and the ways in which ethnic influences, individual choices, practices, and other tools have helped us to heal. Let Me Be , an upcoming dance film, addresses BIPOC experiences of accepting and cel- ebrating ethnic traits for which they were once shamed.

FLUX VERTICAL THEATRE Flux Vertical Theatre is a Bay Area dance company specializing in the art of pole, founded by Kirsten (aka Mz. K) and Leah Marie. For 6 years we have been dancing our way through the Bay Area and beyond with high quality shows featuring per- formers with backgrounds in classical and contemporary styles of dance, gymnastics, theater, and circus arts. We dreamed of one day having a place of our own to call home and now Flux Vertical Theatre is an academy for future pole stars and a gor- geous performance space. Visit us at 811 University Ave in Berkeley.
