More about the piece/work:
Thursday, November 21st, Rena Anakwe presents the third and final work of her 2019 ISSUE residency with the premiere of Ogwu (the healing), an immersive purification ritual sculpted through a visual, sound, and scent bath inspired by the element of fire. Staged in collaboration with lighting designer Kelley Shih, the ritual follows The Cosmology of Water and Fast Forward to Silence, recent commissions that explored the elements of water and air, respectively.
Ogwu (the healing) is the third in a series of rituals that excavate connections between the five elements of nature (water, air, fire, earth, and aether/void) in Anakwe’s development of a sensorial, diasporic healing practice. These rituals take into consideration a holistic approach to blending analog and digital creative technologies with spirituality.
