Details

108+1 is a collaborative performance between Stephanie Mercedes and Naoko Wowsugi that calls for collective healing. Through sound baths and an immersive light installation, they will ask the audience to consider multiple injustices in the world. 108 is a cosmic number in nature, astrology, yoga and many religions. The distance between the earth and sun is 108 times the diameter of the sun. In Japan, Zen Buddhist chime a gong 108 times to purify 108 different sins at the end of the year.  For Sound Baths, Literals (Rebecca Mills and Matt Cohen) and STEFA will perform with the artists.
