Arts + Ecology Residency Programs

REVERIE is the arm of Nature Center that transforms performing arts into contemplative practices for the layperson and professional creative alike. The Director of Reverie, K. Butterfly Smith M.F.A., curates a carefully crafted program that guides the practitioner to a state of reverie – a blissful, authentic state in which the awareness of one’s true self is realized.

there is no inventing in art. only remembering. invoking. an exposition of possibilities and probabilities. everything that is or will be already was and has been. the creativity is in the reassembling of the fragments of memory. the breaching of the veil to construct a bridge between this world and the next, and the next, and the next. the state of REVERIE makes this possible and allows SAE (spontaneous, authentic experience) to form what we call Art – c. marie long
