Teletextile Ritual Arts Ensemble’s GoFundme:
Please consider donating to the bring more meditative and healing arts to public performance.
The goal of this campaign is to develop a cross current between music and wellness by developing new works and events for the broader public, such as community reiki and sound meditations. We are raising money to pay our artists for the upcoming Jump-Start Performance as well as future performances of this work and the creation of new work.
The Teletextile Ritual Arts Ensemble weaves together a tapestry of music, movement, reiki and other healing rituals to create mixture of performance and spiritual practice among its cast of rotating collaborators lead by Pamela Martinez. As a genre-hopping performer and musician, Martinez has performed violin at Carnegie Hall with a Carnatic Indian music ensemble, sang in San Francisco’s historic Fillmore Theater and directs Whisperlodge, an immersive theater performance which The New York Times dubbed “an unusual mix of theater and therapy”. During her extensive international touring, Martinez realized the need for healing, wellness and the divine as a necessary element of her work and thus began TRAE. Active collaborators include:
