"A Surrendering" The healing power of music

The goal for Surrender, is to have new audiences become community through the ritual of the performance. Our hope is that Surrender acts as a sanctuary of art. That the theatre can become a space where through empathy those who enter as strangers leave as comrades. The theme for the “Surrendering” in conjunction with the Atlas Intersections Performing Arts Festival, is based on one of the themes of the production of “what are the rituals we have around music?” and “how does music create a healing space for you?”.  From folk to gospel to hip-hop, there are reasons we turn to the music we turn to to aide us through various moments in our lives. The creation of a mixtape, is the format that Surrender explores, examining just how music can assist in testimony and ritual. During this Surrendering, the community is guided to explore various musical genres, traditions and rituals, while creating their very own mixtape.
