For POWER NIGHTS, Tabita Rezaire will create an immersive video experience that unearths the wisdom of birth, in E-WERK’s outdoor performance space, FLUXDOME. Her own path as a doula plays a strong part and is a long-held desire to follow in the footsteps of her grandmother and great grandmothers who were both midwives. Her work for POWER NIGHTS will culminate in a participatory performance that offers the opportunity to reconnect with our creative essence through the healing power of sound.
