This meditative workshop led by community-healer and theatre-writer Lateisha Davine Lovelace-Hanson, is an invitation to come together and explore the sacred power of water, creating a 'well'.
How do we honour waters of grief and mourning? How do we breathe through and beyond waves of transatlantic/transoceanic memory?
Feelings, thoughts and memories come to the surface creating a space to connect, release and dream.
Inspired from Lateisha’s new play WHEN DE MEMORY CAME <3 <3 <3, this workshop-ritual will play with the endless possibilities of poetry, character voices, songs and meditations to imagine collective liberation. Building up a future free of oppression, a future that sustains and liberates all life on this planet. A future where Black mothers, survivors and caregivers can deeply rest.
This event is for Black women+ only.
Presented by RCA MA Curating Contemporary Art Postgraduate Projects 2022 in partnership with Gasworks, Between the Deep Blue responds to Juha Pekka Mathias Laakkonen's exhibition, Buoyancy. Between the Deep Blue is an invitation to question how we can transform past traumatic histories into new ways of living and healing through a series of ocean-linked workshops and events held in an immersive space.
Lateisha Davine Lovelace-Hanson’s practice flows across intersections of race, gender, queerness, class, earth-climate and (dis)placement/diaspora, rooted in prophetic wisdoms of Black, Indigenous and POC queer.
