For the Honored Dead

choreographed/directed by: Ni’Ja Whitson
performed by: Baba Israel, Jadele McPherson, JD Parran, Ni’Ja Whitson

A site specific performance of reverence.  A reclamation of space, memory, and capacity to honor the loss of Black and Brown folks los to war, state violence, and oppression.  A ritualized recontextualization of the Graham Triangle’s WWII memorial pronouncement “for the Honored Dead”.  We honor, without waiting.
