A séance (pronounced /ˈseɪ.ɑːns/) is an attempt to communicate with spirits. The word "séance" comes from the French word for "seat," "session" or "sitting," from the Old French "seoir," "to sit." In French, the word's meaning is quite general: one may, for example, speak of "une séance de cinéma" ("a movie session"). In English, however, the word came to be used specifically for a meeting of people who are gathered to receive messages from spirits or to listen to a spirit medium discourse with or relay messages from spirits; many people, including skeptics and non-believers, treat it as a form of entertainment. In modern English usage, participants need not be seated while engaged in a séance.

"inner flickering light"
The performance “Inner Flickering Light” by Lindsay Jones is a focused look inside the internal eternal being, examining the tension and release that resides within.
Maurice Merlau-Ponty writes "Consciousness, the world, and the human body as a perceiving thing are intricately intertwined and mutually engaged." The performance by Ms. Jones, featuring three female dancers enacting Butoh-inspired movements, conveys this concept by integrating performance art, fashion design, lighting design, and avant garde classical composition.
Lindsay Jones is the designer of the collection Outlaws of the Border (www.outlawsoftheborder.com). She will be collaborating directly with artist/illustrator Emily Caisip and artist Andrew Yang. Hair by Dennis Gots. Lighting By Jason Sinipoli. Classical composer John Magee will perform live at the event.
