Join us on September 9th & 10th for I cannot not grieve: CRY SCREAM SHOUT SING by Freya Powell.
I cannot not grieve: CRY SCREAM SHOUT SING, a newly commissioned performance by multidisciplinary artist Freya Powell, draws upon the Sophoclean character of Elektra and a Greek chorus to recognize the experience of ambiguous loss as a means to counter the statistic-based records of the COVID-19 pandemic. The performance addresses the permanent state of grieving we have been living in since the start of the pandemic. Exploring the voice as the medium this piece tests pitch, tone, pacing, and silence from operatic singing to theatrical utterances. Through varied public expressions of grief (crying, screaming, shouting, and singing) this performance will shroud the listener in an exploration of these outward bodily utterances.
