The Ritual of Breath Is the Rite to Resist

An offering. An opera in seven movements. A call for justice.

7:30pm – 9:00pm
Spaulding Auditorium, Hopkins Center for the Arts
Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Arts, Performances
Registration required. Fee required. Tickets required.

Responding to the murder of Eric Garner, this meditative and immersive work is a creative act of resistance. Centering the voice and plea of an activist / daughter / soprano, The Ritual of Breath Is the Rite to Resist interweaves music, text, visuals and movement, gathering us together as co-conspirers—to breathe and keep breathing any way we can. 

The evening-length offering is preceded by six days of digital and in-person rituals, inviting participants to share in communal acts of healing and reflection. We'll share these rituals and activations with you as they are announced.
