Dancing on the Brink of the World
A Star Waltz in the Key of Canvas, Music and Myth
What do you get when you project twelve modern day creation myths onto twelve expressionist canvasses and flavor them with a cosmic rock opera?
Legendary author and mythologist Joseph Campbell would be proud. Dancing on the Brink of the World combines 12 paintings, stories, songs, and astrological signs to evoke archetypal truth in a simple, universal language. Sven Eberlein’s short stories playfully woven throughout the twelve signs of the zodiac are infused with contemporary social, ecological, and spiritual issues. Set off by Evelyn Terranova’s visionary art and original rock ‘n roll-based songs by recording artists Chemystry Set, pulled together by renowned evolutionary astrologer Steven Forrest’s interludes, the book is a tribute to creative collaboration, beauty, and the quest for spiritual significance.
And when was the last time you listened to a rockn’ roll horoscope, anyway?
