the aisha of is

Light pours out and into the eyes, throat, and spine of Aisha Sasha John in the ancient, original devotional practice that constitutes the aisha of is. In this alchemical ritual, John’s embodied listening reveals her sensitivity as a power. The freedom to move and speak as willed, and to will what is felt, is the discipline John offers herself as medicine to patriarchal, racist violence. Welcome to is.

Part of the SummerWorks Presentations programming – offering you a snapshot of contemporary performance in 2018. A vital collection of theatre, dance, music, and live art works from across the country.
