5/1/17 O&A NYC HOLLYWOOD MONDAY: This Ain’t A Eulogy: A Ritual for Re-Membering

Taja Lindley’s This Ain’t A Eulogy: A Ritual for Re-Membering draws parallels between discarded materials and the violent treatment of Black people in the United States.

Moved by the non-indictments of the police officers responsible for the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown, Lindley repurposed trash bags to re-member, honor and value the Black lives we have lost due to police violence. In this post-Ferguson moment, Lindley is imagining how to recycle the energy of protest, rage, and grief into creating a world where, indeed, Black lives matter. 

This Ain’t A Eulogy: A Ritual for Re-Membering

This solo performance healing ritual debuted in January 2015 at La Mama’s SQUIRTS: New Voices in Queer Performance.
