Find joy in everyday rituals in this online performance.

Are you ready to give some time to your grief? The Ritual is an intense, intimate communion between you and Stacy Makishi, all over a 30-minute Zoom. Let Stacy hold you through a transformational and sacred ritual with the most mundane household objects. Opening the fridge door offers a rite of passage. Flushing the toilet becomes a radical act of healing. You may not be housebound but coming home can set you free.

“Makishi creates an extraordinary sense of intimacy, at once one soothing and alarming… there are times that the performance nudges the profound.”

Exeunt

“On the phone and around the house, she guides a contemplation of all that we’ve lost – people, jobs, certainty. It’s a gentle, buoyant little piece.”
