A congregation for those past, present and future comes to power in (pray), a new choreopoem by nicHi douglas. A celebration and a reckoning, (pray) dives into the beautifully complex relationship between Black womxn and their spirituality. Following the form of a Sunday Baptist Church service while transporting us to an isolated ancestral forest, this sacred offering creates a communal space to heal and inspire the Black feminine divine. Alchemized in collaboration with S T A R R Busby, JJJJJerome Ellis and Tariq Al-Sabir, (pray) interrogates and uplifts the tremendous value and weight of spiritual inheritance.
