Sub rosa literally means “under the rose” in New Latin. Since ancient times, the rose has often been associated with secrecy. In ancient mythology, Cupid gave a rose to Harpocrates, the god of silence, to keep him from telling about the indiscretions of Venus. Ceilings of dining rooms have been decorated with carvings of roses, reportedly to remind guests that what was said at the table should be kept confidential. 

– Merriam Webster

 

Sub Rosa (Under the Rose) is a darkly feminine tale of pathworking through the Kabbalistic Tree of Life. Drawing on mythic archetypes and modern sensibilities, Sub Rosa is a multimedia production; featuring the talents of LUNARIS and guest artists, it includes dance performance, active ritual elements, music, singing, and visuals.

Our journey follows the Heroine through her acceptance and transcendence, an empowering odyssey dealing with inner mysteries, focusing on the interaction of deep primal femininity with her inner and outer landscapes. Each performance acts as an independent allegory, exploring the energies of each Sphere.

LUNARIS:
The mission of LUNARIS is to physically manifest the workings of the soul and spirit through the art of dance, ritual, and theater. Dancers act as keepers of the gates and portrayers of the unseen. To experience LUNARIS is to remember and awaken into/out of the dream. It is the intention of LUNARIS to create experience rather than just performance.
