$5-$15 sliding scale admission
Presented as part of 'Submerge 2017: Break Time,' curated by Ali Rosa-Salas
'Obeah (A Black Ritual)' is an alchemical choreography contemplating grief in the sensorium of a social gathering. The unnamed potential of depth is met with the elusiveness of deep water as sound artist Rena Anakwe and performing artist Katrina Reid propose a collective descent into the undercurrents with an insistence on superstition. Their dialogical improvisation composes an ever-expanding blackened surround, which submerges its witnesses in the dynamism of the wave—a habitat of specters and impressions—as it calls for togetherness with ardent yet detestable desire.
*Due to capacity, advanced reservation is highly recommended. There will be a limited number of tickets available at the door (cash only).*
