LIVE PERFORMANCE & INSTALLATION

A solo performance by Kat Gorospe Cole centered around mental health and ancestral connection. Exploring within what seedkeeper Rowen White calls the “diaspora of disconnect,” Cole looks for the threads that connect her to a maternal history back to the Ilocos region of the Philippines. What has been inherited? What has been lost? What can be refound?  QUAKE weaves together sound, imagery and vibrations to physicalize ideas of grief, longing and closeness.

The project also includes free community workshops for the public to experience alternative healing practices via the arts.
