at the Carmel Fine Art & Music Festival in the Marquis Event Tent
Maja Bannerman presents Future Perfect!
Through song, monologues, movement and performance pieces Maja explores the various realms and conundrums of contemporary society. Characters, real and imagined, come to life as Maja moves, for instance, from being an agro phobic to an acclaimed opera singer to a young orphan ~ each person she embodies has a story to tell and each story asks something of us and our own lives. Bannerman explores and celebrates this grand mystery called life and believes there just might be a Future Perfect! At the end of the performance there will be time for a short conversation circle to share thoughts and ask questions regarding the themes raised in Maja’s presentation.
