“Strictly speaking, that body asleep in your bed is kin to your corpse.Occupant elsewhere. Every night we disappear. Wthout this little dab of perspective, we’d go mad!”
Wind in a Mirror...Ayahuasca Visions is a boldly original multimedia solo show, a play of ironies about death, guilt and transcendence. The story is a search for enlightenment climaxing in the Amazon in a ceremony with Ayahuasca, the visionary Vine of Death. Spoken word and song are accompanied by a surreal art video with music by Tom Lackner and Amazon shamans Don Agustin Rivas Vasquez and
Don Jose Campos. Josie has received standing ovations and sold-out shows at The Marsh Theater in
San Francisco as well as Center Stage Theater this past December.
