How can ritual and play be technologies for liberation? How can we name and embody our dreams? Our participatory performance experiments with emergent spiritualities as practices of healing and love.

We live in a ritual-deprived society, yet rituals can create collective containers to heal and build community. Many of us - especially women, trans, non-binary, and gender diverse people - have experienced harm in ritual space, especially in religious communities. Therefore, this experiment in ritual play seeks to explore the ways we can reimagine ritual in liberatory ways. Theater is a powerful space for worldbuilding, witness, and embodiment; ritual can be the same. Let’s explore what possibilities emerge when we bring these two forms together.

All are warmly invited to attend. We especially invite people of color and/or LGBTQ+ folks to come rest, heal, and connect.

Accessibility: audience participation encouraged at this performance, parts of the performance will be unscripted

About the organizer

The National Women's Theatre Festival (WTF) is a group of artists who seek to address gender parity, diversity, & inclusion in the theatre community. While we began as a women specific group of creators, we have realized and recognized that in order to truly work for and achieve gender parity, we must be committed to representing all historically excluded genders. Our name reflects our original intent, but we are committed to more than just cis women. We are committed to any theatre artist who does not feel their gender has been equitably represented either on stage or off in a traditional theatre space. We welcome you, we want to hear your story, and we want to see you on our stage.
