ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
Habits. Relationships. Belief Systems. Memories – our histories walk among us. And to ignore them is to be haunted by them. Taja Lindley’s «The Bag Lady Manifesta» is an immersive, participatory experience filled with striking visuals and dynamic movement. Audiences are invited to (re)consider what to let go of, and what to remember. The Bag Lady is a living Sankofa, of movement, theater, and ritual – with the intention to build a collective memory and to create a just future for all.
