When the land stands alone and Storyteller's Mero Geet Mero Yatra
MU-Connector/When the land stands alone is a multi-part ritual theater experience from Korean shamanistic performance artist Dohee Lee.
Built from collective community healing rituals, MU-Connector delves into our myths, ancestral land, history, and stories, while also reflecting on wounds suffered and inflicted through systemic oppression in the U.S. and our homelands.
MU-Connector explores ancestral traditions transmuted through dance, singing, drumming, and storytelling, weaving together electronic soundscapes, an altar installation, and community participation to create a communal creative ritual performance.
This theater experience includes performances from Storytellers (Mero Geet Mero Yatra), CoRazOn/CRE Cohorts, Mu ritual drummers, and Puri Arts collectives.
