Carolyn Hillyer

DANCER FOR AUTUMN. She is the untamed, reckless bearer of a drum named Berridraun’s skin. She is the place where fearsome chaos turns into a liberating wilderness of soul. Goat toe rattles roughly clatter and ochre powders are crushed to paint the power that is being driven into the ground. Her dance is a reckoning, a turning point for justice won, a scorpionic anger that raises madness to an art. She dances where the final chant is sung and intense swells of energy flow backwards at the Autumn Ebb.
