This is our last Weekly Tuesday, but it is not the last Underground Nomads show. We will continue to host occasional shows in the Bay area, here at F8 and in other locations around the bay, as well as in different cities around the world. We have shows in the works in Oakland, Seattle and Spain. Keep an eye here on the website for updates, or subscribe to the blog and you will receive notifications. We will also post on the facebook page.


Guest dancer Analetta is from Billings, Montana and has been dancing for 7 years. She is a Rachel Brice certified 8 Elements Practitioner and has also earned Zoe Jakes Dancecraft Key of Diamonds certification. She has been doing ITS for 4 years with Tesseract Dance Collective. She makes most of her costumes and jewelry herself; occasionally she sells some of what she makes.


St. BlueJay Soaps will also be vending. St. BlueJay Soap Co. is a local creative studio specializing in handcrafted artisan soaps and body products. Inspired by wildlife, botanicals, and minerals, St. BlueJay’s luxurious lineup will feature signature scented bars, crystal and gem soaps, shea-based skin balms, and oil serums.

Introducing Ishtar-Lhotus: Ishtar-Lhotus of Soul Synergy ARTventures is a multimedia expressive arts performer, combining elements from various eclectic childhood travels. Originally from the Los Angeles areas, she has also performed in the SF Bay Area for Dancing Poetry Festivals, Bare Bones Butoh, Alameda Museum, Alameda Theatre, Oakland Asian Cultural Center, Lunar New Year Festival, SF Asian Heritage Street Celebrations, Easter holiday church presentations, Birthday requests, special gala events, and random open mic/stages. The idea of Fusion, especially Tribal Fusion in the realms of feminine movement dance forms, has called to Ishtar-Lhotus on an intuitive instinctual aesthetic heart level as long as she can remember. She is delighted to now share in the San Francisco Bay Area music/dance communities which have been keeping these treasured practices alive, vital, inspired, and inspiring!
