Body and Land is a multi-disciplinary performance that explores eco-justice from multiple perspectives. This is a paradigm shift and a work which celebrates the familial relationship between our vulnerable bodies and the vulnerable body of the land we share. Sponsored by a Creation Care grant from The Episcopal Church in collaboration with, Church of The Holy Trinity, Ekklesia Contemporary Ballet, and Christ Church Cathedral.
Body and Land will take place June 4th through June 12th. The schedule of the week is listed below.
This initiative is a creative and gentle invitation to meditate and explore our relationship with creation and our call to raise awareness on matters of eco-justice as followers of Jesus. All events are free and open to the public. Please join us as we conclude this wonderful season of Body & Land events across ECCT. This grand finale will be hosted in person at our Cathedral and live-stream through our social media outlets and website.
