Liturgy – Order – Bridge FULLY MASKED
**Fully Masked Matinee: This performance will be fully masked for audience members in order to make the event accessible for folks who cannot be in unmasked spaces. Please note that performers will not be masked. Extra masks will be available onsite.
A project of Hartford-based Scapegoat Garden, “Liturgy|Order|Bridge” is a participatory dance ritual that fuses sacred traditions and secular performance modalities to make porous the border between “audience” and “performance.” Calling on Black church traditions, core performers bring guests into a collective score of movement, clapping, vocalization, and witnessing. A chorus of local movement artists and change makers guide guests into and through the liturgy performance and then into the rest of life through a visual and aural landscape that pushes and pulls ideas of faith, nature, fashion, and experimentation. Liturgy provides an avenue by which all participants of the encounter can identify and establish shared responsibilities among and to one another, which can then ripple out beyond the performance itself.
