An improvisational performance practice developed by dani tirrell, The Congregation, and guests, these rituals are part of an ongoing research that dani has been moving with for over the past 8 years. The Congregation is collaborating with Wa Na Wari in the historical Central District of Seattle to invite rest and disruption, care and anger, love and rage, as a way to seek what the world cannot hold for us.
“Prayers to the Body that Holds Me: Rituals of finding safety in our bodies” features local and non local makers to explore themes of care, bravery and safety, and asks the questions: How does one seek and hold safety in their body in a world that deems Black, Queer, Women & Femmes, Trans and Gender Free people unworthy of safety? How do we hold each other as we seek safety in our bodies collectively and individually? What does our world look like if safety was not our concern? Can we actually be safe?
