Mark Sklawer has been
exploring the connection between popular culture, and mythology all of his
creative life. He is a musician, producer, director, visual artist, and
visionary. Growing up with rock and electronic music, mythic and popular culture led Mark to pursue studying and working as a professional photographer, musician, as well as in the performing arts. He has also trained in disciplines such as meditation, shamanism, body/mind practices, martial arts, and ecstatic drum and dance rituals. This has led Mark to create for over ten years, ritual theatrical dance events, culminating in the vision of Body Temple.
“I realized that all culture is rooted in the ancestors singing and dancing their stories around the fire.
The only difference today is the technology of expression and the access to global information.”
Currently, Mark Sklawer is in development stage for two feature film. Electric Visions is an urban musical fantasy about “Sex, Drugs, Rock and Roll and Magic”. Einstein, Michael Jackson and Me is a documentary based on the most successful PR person in music history, Howard Bloom.
