THREE RITES: Happiness
a collective celebration of catharsis, uplift and joy
The US Declaration of Independence states that life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are the unalienable rights which have been given to all human beings by their creator and for which governments are created to protect. THREE RITES: Life, Liberty, Happiness is a six-hour interdisciplinary experience by DELIRIOUS Dances/ Edisa Weeks, that involves three performance rituals (rites) that integrate live music, dance, text, video, two visual installations, community conversations and shared meals to interrogate what these rights mean, for whom these rights are protected, and how they manifest in the body.
