Requiem for a Stranger is a work of movement-theater, music, and interactive design exploring the vast heartspace of grief. Inspired by texts by adrienne maree brown, Rainer Maria Rilke, the healer Martín Prechtel, and the creators’ own losses – the production is devised as a love song for the stage. Figures move like rivulets through an absurd wilderness, navigating overlapping crises, ancestral memory, and the paradise of the mundane.
Requiem for a Stranger is the culmination of the year-long project, “The Gorgeous Offerings,” produced by Renee Benson, India Mack, and Jennifer Sargent – a series of community events, workshops, and sacred spaces created to support healing from the ruptures of the Covid-19 pandemic.
