A short film on the Artistic Rising in Bali that took place 16 December 2018 at Akasha Restaurant, Bali.

“The Feminine Rise” is an artistic event boldly fusing music, dance, poetry, theatre, movement, film and ritual in an evening of creatively subversive, beautiful, sensual, provocative and ecstatic performance art celebrating and honoring the Feminine.

It was a powerful call for all of us – Men & Women – to honor and embody the Feminine through art, ritual and dance – as we Rise for Love, Humanity and Life.

The event featured V-Day and One Billion Rising Founder and Creative Director Eve Ensler, One Billion Rising Global Director Monique Wilson, The Feminine Rise Creative Director Layla El Khadri, AWO Project, along with an astounding line up of artists, activists and healers from all over the globe, all RISING towards a vision of a new world.
