OBEAH (A BLACK RITUAL)


Description of Project:

Directed by Jonathan Gonzalez
Featuring Katrina Reid and Rena Anakwe

'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.
