Evokation Sacred Art is a Ritual Theatre collective. Created to be a platform for artisans to be showcased inside a unique exploration of intentional performance. The focus is placed on healing, awakening, and activation of each individual artisan which than transmits authentically through the practice of presence & embodied ritual theatre on stage.
How do we give words to something beyond our linear understanding and yet our beings recognize it instantly when we stand in its presence? This has been the mission of this project since 2009. Formerly called Soulvoice Sacred Art, Evokation is re-emerging this year on a few stages across the globe to give a voice to the soul that longs to be heard again by the hearts of those aching to hear. What makes Evokation unique is the commitment to inspiring each artist to integrate transpersonal and embodiment ritual into each live performance. The focus being placed specifically on presence removes this type of performance from average entertainment into an experience that redefines the power of performance to be a conduit to transport us all into the present moment where our connection to our soul begins.
This art form can also be described as: Evocation dancing through the vessel of performance to allow for an alchemical experience of human expression. A portal in our physical bodies that energetically creates a way to touch the divinity with our senses and re-unite us with our soul. The latin translation of “per” means through, through form is the literal translation of perform and its through form we open a doorway to connect to the source of all creation also known as presence.
Who is Evokation Sacred Art?
The visionary, creator & devotee of Evokation is Eve Olution. Eve came to California at the end of 2007 and quickly found her way into the underground art scene of San Diego and Los Angeles. Fire performers, tribal belly dancers, and visual artists surrounded her with exceptional talent and changed her world forever. The inner calling to work and collaborate with these exceptional artists became a fire that fueled the passion to begin a creation that is now called Evokation Sacred Art. The original vision was for this to be an entertainment troupe filled to the brim with visual opulence of the tales of the ancient classical stories. With Eve’s background and professional training in theatre, she envisioned directing solo artists into collaborative productions based in these stories to be performed for various audiences, but little did she know by making the choice to use the stories of the ancient myth and thereby evoking this energy, something much larger would emerge into reality. The first performance proved to be a turning point for the intention and focus of every performance there after. The undeniable spiritual and energetic experience of that special night led to the realization of the power of ritual, myth, and ancient wisdom long forgotten hidden in the tales of all the ancient deities. And so, Evokation Sacred Art was born in 2009 after this unimaginable experience and has been evolving from that magickal evening ever since.
