Body Like Scripture Performance

September 16, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Join Silen Wellington for their first full-length solo show! A night of Queer/Trans performance art, electroacoustic music, spoken word, and ritual exploring themes of legibility/illegibility, coherence/incoherence, survival/resistance, and the sacred/profane.

Support the show on GoFundMe!

About the show:

The overall show title Body like Scripture, is both a prayer and an assertion. Body like Scripture, as in — without denial — my body is sacred, the map I follow, all the guidance I need to lead me to the horizons I seek. Body like Scripture, as in, please let these worlds change, so we may value our trans bodies, please let these worlds change so we may listen more to the wisdom of our bones, these bones that have come from Earth and return, these bones that can call us forward into accountability, into dreams of sustainable futures. Body like Scripture, as in, maybe through witnessing this performance you can more deeply experience the ground of your being, let the reflection of my art echo-shine off some important place within you.

Accessibility: This event will be held in the event hall and is not handicap accessible.
