What is It? 

Split The First Atom: A Ritual In The Making of Everything, is a Storytelling event. We follow a long tradition of inspired storytelling enmeshed with music that spans across cultures, geography, and time. Centuries of our ancestors have shared this experience of story and we feel it through our bones.

The story we carry to you is of the large and epic variety. It is an exciting story about Legends and Archetypes, about ghosts and The Spirits as they roam and have roamed our worlds. 

This story is cohesive --a beginning, a middle, and an end-- and aims to give the audience a satisfying evening of entertainment with inspiration to take home.

Our presentation is rooted in a timeless form of communication and may be enjoyed by all ages.

This is not an audience participation event.

Run Time: 1 hour  15 minutes

WhAT SHOUld I Expect from a ritual?

Our Ritual Performances inspire and comfort. These stories provide a means of speaking through the overwhelming problems of modern life in terms that allow for solutions both large and small to surface in our personal and collective conscious. These stories are powerful, they connect us to one another, and to our common ground as embodied souls. Connection and belonging are experiences in healing. All you do is listen to good storytelling. 

WHere do YOU perform?

It is our mission to bring these stories forward and to continue our own cultural tradition of carving out spaces and times and routes and innovative means of making meaningful artistic expression a central part of human life.

We tell our stories everywhere.

We have presented in small theatres and the backrooms at bars and bookstores. We tell these stories in warehouses and garages and backyards stranded in Christmas lights and made perfect by small barking dogs.

We are suitable for schools and churches and elder communities and your living room. We are on a mission to fulfil a purpose to tell these stories as we are requested to do so.

Let us take you to a big, big world full of spectacular sights and unexpected heights with nothing more than words and music and that initial spark of electricity.

We require an electrical outlet and a lamp.
