What is shapelight?
shapelight is: a participatory ritual performance, creating harmony between the material and sacred realms.
shapelight brings together an intimate group of participants, for creative and mystical encounters. Participants build ephemeral and intimate installations with and of each other, using body, objects, light and sound.
shapelight explores our sacred connection to spirit and ancestors, earth and each other.
Our participatory installation-builds begin with a process of gathering materials: in connection with the land, waters, cities and personal lives & lineages of our community partners. These materials are the foundation for the ever-shifting installation, the site of our ritual performance. We then engage our stories, our bodies and sacred objects to generate a creative & ceremonial experience - where everyone is both a performer and a witness.
