Provoked by social and creative necessities ritual is the voice of community, 33 Swoonings, a multimedia performance with dance, live music and video, is the living embodiment of a variety of cultures in a dialogue. An experimental ritual that flashes with the tensions, paradoxes, and mutual longings of our pluralistic world, this performance makes space for the anxieties as well as the delights of being human. Music and choreography weave together African-American, Mediterranean, West African, and contemporary genres. The performance is followed by a dialogue between the performers and the audience on the issue of a society's attempts to re-envision itself. This event is coordinated by Jenny Lynn McNutt, artist.
