NECTAR and the Art of Healing

Quarterly Arts Salon Gives Back


Since 2009, Cybil Gilbertson has been curating NECTAR, a quarterly salon where dancers, writers, musicians, and visual artists present work on a given theme. It’s more than a performance; it’s an educational and inspirational community event. This Saturday, Yoga Soup will host the 15th installment of NECTAR, centered on the concept of healing. In keeping with NECTAR’s tradition of contributing funds to a nonprofit whose work echoes the theme of the show, a portion of the proceeds will go to Santa Barbara Street Medicine.

Among those taking part are modern dance artists Meredith Cabaniss and Susan Shaberman, physical theater collaborative ArtBark, and visual artists Dylan and Friends. From accounts of literal illness and recovery to more abstract meditations on wounding and healing, the evening promises to go deep. Catch NECTAR: The Art of Healing on Saturday, March 8, at 7 p.m. at Yoga Soup (28 Parker Wy.). Doors open at 6:45 p.m. Learn more at sbnectar.com.
