Zoe Jakes is coming back to Chattanooga on Friday, May 6th.
The uber-talented lady from Beats Antique is touring her latest project, House of Tarot. Demonstrating once again that she is one of the most creative and talented performers today, Jakes is responsible for the concept, choreography, music composition, and costume and set design for this project which opens in Asheville, stops in Chattanooga, and finishes in New Orleans.
As in Beats Antique, Jakes indulges in mythic story-telling through sound and movement,
affording a nod to Joseph Campbell and Carl Jung as she brings to life the archetypes of the Major Arcana of the mystic tarot.
Ms. Jakes will be joined by bellydancers from across the country including three of Chattanooga’s own: Lacy Jo, Jules Downum and Mattie Waters. The performance/theatrical happening will take place at The Camp House at 7 p.m. with opening performances by students from Zanzibar Studio as well as the Tribe Zanzibar Dancers and special guests Lauryn Elise and Suzanne Rambo.
Tickets are available for $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Do not miss this very rare opportunity to witness the mélange of artistic style and genre bringing to life the most ancient myths of humankind in a fusion of the primal and the modern that transcends language.
