Water Ritual: Tending the Edge at Jamaica Bay
My act of performing water rituals is an acknowledgment of the sacredness of water and expresses gratitude for water as a life-giving force. Through the act of ritual I reconnect with ancestral knowledge and extract and reclaim that history from my body.
Through the movements and gestures of my rituals I embody reverence. I want viewers to focus on ways in which water is alive and (re)connect with the sacred life-giving force on planet Earth and in their own bodies.
This was a project of Tending the Edge NYC 2021.
