dani tirrell and The Congregation presents, Prayers to the Body that Holds Me: Rituals of finding safety in our bodies. PBH is an improvisational performance practice developed by dani tirrell, The Congregation, and guests. These rituals are part of an ongoing research that dani has been moving with for over the past 8 years.

Date: August 26, 2023

Time: 5:00 pm ~ Meditation/Prayer/ Intentions – 6:00 pm ~ Performance

Location: Wa Na Wari

Prayers to the Body that Holds Me: Rituals of finding safety in our bodies ask the questions….How does one seek and hold safety in their body in a world that deems Black, Queer, Women & Femmes, Trans and Gender Free people unworthy of safety? How do we hold each other as we seek safety in our bodies collectively and individually? What does our world look like if safety was not our concern? Can we actually be safe?

The Congregation is collaborating with Wa Na Wari in the historical Central District of Seattle to invite rest and disruption, care and anger, love and rage as a way to seek what the world can not hold for us.

PBH features local and non local makers to explore themes of care, bravery and safety.
