R&D: Sackcloth & Ashes Rehearsal, February 2016




The elders of Daughter Zion
    sit on the ground in silence;
they have sprinkled dust on their heads
    and put on sackcloth.
The virgins of Jerusalem
    have bowed their heads to the ground.
- Lamentations, 2:10
 
Acts of repentance
    for Our sins;
the sins of Our flesh.
In the name of the father
    Our men.  
- Church of Performance, 1:1
 
Sackcloth and Ashes explores the complex relationship between religious ideology and the female body. It attempts to re-frame female lived experience, presenting emancipation through acts of strength, poise, compassion, and tenderness.
