In all moments possible, we must believe we have the power to interrupt, defeat and replace the larger forces we are told will inevitably manipulate us, and still remain at the mercy of the forces of nature that govern the planet we inhabit. Join us together for a performative, multisensory installation under the Iuka Bridge as it is transformed into a space of togetherness, light, and life. Utilizing video, handmade materials, reflective surfaces, and live song/call-and-response, we will transport ourselves to a version of an inclusive reality where we can find respite from current conditions. Though we will congregate beneath this rigid point of transience, we hope to create a warm, welcoming oasis that invites you to imagine another world and to harness the power of your choice.
