Both a celebration and a reckoning, (pray) explores the beautifully complex relationship between Black womxn and their spirituality. Presented in the form of a Sunday Baptist Church service while transporting the audience to an isolated ancestral forest, this sacred offering creates a communal space to heal and inspire the Black feminine divine. Brought to life in collaboration with S T A R R Busby, and JJJJJerome Ellis, (pray) interrogates and uplifts the tremendous value and weight of spiritual inheritance.
