Three evenings of community building and ritual planning with Dr. Shamell Bell.

Wednesday, August 10, 2022
6:00pm – 8:30pm
Alumni Hall, Hopkins Center for the Arts
Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Arts, Workshops & Training
Registration required.

Led by community organizer, performer and professor Dr. Shamell Bell, this three-day workshop builds upon the seven rituals planned to precede The Ritual of Breath Is the Rite to Resist premiering in September. Through shared meals, collective reflection, and collaboration, the group will create and plan in-person and digital activations that engage other "co-conspirers" and amplify the social impact of this work.Produced by the Hopkins Center and co-commissioned by Stanford Live Arts, the opera invites audiences to rise up against the theft of Black breath, to meditate on our shared humanity, and to join in the agency of shared resistance.

Who is this for: Dartmouth students, artists, activists and organizers, and all those allied against the state-sanctioned violence against Black communities.
