Out From the Deep: A Meditation for Them Turners is a new work created to honor the life and memory of Mary Turner , who was brutalized and lynched while 8-months pregnant after publicly objecting to her husband's murder. This piece compels audiences to encounter truths that grapple with and work to overcome trauma. Its movements and imagery draw upon the hidden tenderness and strength: nature’s streams, veins and pathways of nurture and transformation. It presents kaleidoscopes of sacred geometries in which patterns might dislodge and open cascades of new configurations of truths hidden in plain sight. This immersive dance work sits at the intersection of dance on film, virtual reality, movement as meditation and performance art installation.

Once you RSVP, you will be on the list to receive the video link in a confirmation email on the morning of the show date, December 9th. Streaming information will be sent out again one hour before the show in case you missed it!
