Sophia Blanton is a lifelong dancer, mythic scholar and Priestess of the Goddess. Her work explores the intersection between Myth, Movement and Magic. A native of Macedonia, her lifelong study of Greek and Near-Eastern archetypes forms the basis of her work in “Prayerformance”. As a longtime devotee of the technique and repertory of Isadora Duncan, she discovered a physical language for dance/performance embodiment of Goddess Archetypes and interpretiation of devotional themes. Her Prayerformance “Morgana’s Dance” is set to Heloise Pilkington’s haunting song “Morgana”, and weaves Duncan’s water repertory with the lore and legend of Morgana, Priestess of the Sea and of Avalon.
