Burning Man Presents...

BURNAL EQUINOX 2011!
Saturday, March 5th!
8pm to 3am
Mission Rock Café
817 Terry Francois Blvd, SF
(take Mariposa St to the Bay)
www.missionrockcafe.com
Entry: $20 general admission; $15 dressed in playa finery OR with your baby picture visibly attached to your clothing
21+ over

Burnal Equinox marks the mid-point between last year’s burn and this year’s.  It's our first major event of the year and you can expect a wide and stunning array of art, live performance, dancing, philosophizing, theme camp indescribeables and so much MORE!  You are encouraged to shape the night by sharing art and experiences from previous Burning Man events and your plans for 2011.

In keeping with this year's Burning Man theme, "Rites of Passage", you are also invited to express transformational moments in your real and imagined journey through life.  Remember those defining experiences that helped you come into your own? Perhaps your first kiss, getting married/divorced, an alien abduction, your very first white out, a birth, or a near death experience that changed the way you live...maybe an imagined ritual from a distant land. You are invited to explore the theme through dress, stories, pictures, drawings, pantomime or other forms of creative expression. Join others in re-living or creating entirely new and curious rites of passage. These may be as varied as life itself and range from ludicrous to solemn.

So, whether you are remembering a previous year’s burn, dressing for your prom, creating a sacred procession of unicorns and golden earmuffs, or you skip all the fuss and come as you are...we hope to celebrate what has made YOU who you are...and want to be!

Participating Artists, Performers, DJs and Groups So Far Include:

AEZ, Anodyne, Aurelie Clivaz,  Christopher Mankowski and Jay Ruby of Carpetbag Brigade, Danielle Dance, VJ Flood, The Fossettes, Hobo Gobbelins, HistErica, House of Inanna, i can dress myself, Kathy D'Onofrio (Tattoed Aliens), Kenneth Griswa (Phoenix Eggs), DJ Laird, Margaret DeCuir (Labyrinth of Life), DJ Mo Corleone, Nathan Montgomery of Syzygy Butoh, Neon Bunny, NoMe, Patricia “Aishah” Rusich (Dance 4 Positivity), Planet Booty, Playa Info, The Black Rock Rangers, Strata Chalup (Forest of the Heart), The Orphics, Vicar - bodysynth, DJ Whisky Devil, YOU, and many more still being confirmed!
Join us in creating the first Flambe Lounge of 2011!

Share your artistic vision and expression in the limited space still available.
Performing artists, DJs, musicians, artists, and theme camps, we want to hear from you! Whatcha got?

Host a Regional!  Housing Needed for BM Regional Summit!

Howdy Bay Area Burning Man Friends!

We are pleased to announce Burning Man's fourth annual Regional Network Leadership Summit, hosted in San Francisco.  Each year, we invite Regional Contacts and other community leaders from across the globe to the Bay Area to share ideas and connect with one another and with local Burners and staff.  We are seeking hosts for our out-of-town Burner guests who will be in town
Friday, April 1st through April 3rd.

This year's Summit is held in Japantown.  If you live in an area close to public transportation and can accommodate guests, please let us know via SummitHousing@BurningMan.com.  You can expect that some visitors will arrive as early as Thursday evening, March 31st and may leave Monday morning, April 4th.

We find that giving the Regional Contacts and other guests the opportunity to stay with a member of the community adds so much to their experience and makes them feel more welcome than they would if they were going to lay their head upon a hotel pillow each night.

Though we're not yet sure exact numbers of attendees or their exact arrival dates and times, we wanted to put out a call to get an idea of how many visitors we'll be able to match up with local hosts during the Summit weekend.

Please email us at SummitHousing@BurningMan.com if you're interested, and we'll forward you a short questionnaire to collect information about the area in which you live, proximity to public transport, and how many guests you might be willing to host.

Many thanks and dusty love,
The Burning Man Regionals Committee
