Jumana Emil Abboud will blend folk tale, water-lore and myth with present-day lived experience in this performance. The artist will also draw upon her long-term collective practice around water bodies as sites of story and as a human/non-human community sanctuary. This spoken-word performance intends to unfold as a cultural antidote to the scars of displacement. It reveals how co-authored storytelling processes can hold our fragmented selves with care, unscathed by the misaligned weight of history.
