WHAT DO YOU NEED?
How do we connect in times of crisis?
As the global pandemic began, audiences were invited to heal and connect through a variety of experiences that both explored and escaped the current moment. Each piece is a one-on-one interaction created bespoke for the audience member by its performer.
swim fly crawl || a personal dance journey
Audience members complete a questionnaire and artist Martha Marion creates a playlist just for them. Marion then guides the audience through a personal dance journey over Zoom.
dive || a radical bath meditation
Monica Miklas writes unique meditations for each audience member, then guides them through a sonic experience while they take a curated bath in their own home.
look out || a noticing walk
A walk through the audience member's neighborhood to connect with nature, guided over the phone by Mason Flink.
my home is a temple || a ritual made for you
Lauren Ludwig creates rituals for the audience based on their needs and desires, crafting containers to celebrate birth, transformation, and death, then leading the experiences over Zoom.
