Atrium Obscurum USA and Atrium Obscurum Mexico bring you “OstarA”
We invite you to join us this Spring Equinox in our trance dance ritual, Ostara!
In the old times, before the Paschal calendar, the new year was traditionally celebrated on the equinox; a day when light and dark became equal, signifying the end of Winter and the return of the Sun. Ôstara, Germanic goddess of Spring and the Dawn, represented the return of these life giving properties: new light, new life, balance and rebirth. Shrouded in mystery, lost to the conquests of time, Ostara, or Ēostre in the old English dialect, was the symbol of concentrated energy, fertility and fecundity often represented curiously by the primordial egg, forming many of the archetypes of Easter later co-opted by the Christian god.
But far beyond this, animistic and mystical, ancient tribal peoples revered divinity in the natural world that surrounded them in a way the modern world scarcely notices. Ostara is the first warm spring winds, the first birds that return, the first trees that bud and curl forth leaves and flowers. She is quite literally the awakening Earth, and the life giving rains; she is a young maiden, wreathed in flowers, joyous and dancing in harmony. Like Spring itself, she is capricious, innocent and knowing in ways unseen.
Join us this Equinox as the earth reawakens to honor this balance of light and dark, the return of the sun, and the rebirth of spirit through dance, ritual and workshops. Our opening ceremony begins at sunset, 7:30pm, at the main stage. Any and all types of devotion are welcomed and encouraged.

This is a project of Aditya Verma from Mumbai, India now residing in Brooklyn, NY.
Picking up the guitar at a young age opened his ears to the world of music. Inspired by genres like classic, progressive rock and metal music, he played for a few bands through his teen years and early twenties. It was during his late teens did he discover his love for psychedelic trance music. Being a short train ride from Goa during these years, exposed him to the sheer power a psychedelic trance dance experience can have, and it all started from there. Thanks to the amazing PMM family that grew up on these experiences together, we decided to carry it forward to wherever we go on this globe. Showcasing fine tunes from all aspects of night time dark and cyberdelic psychedelic trance music to darker side forest, he will make you do the Tandava. He is big on heavy and light on his feet. Await transportation aboard his psychedelicly charged ship of inner mystery.
