Operating on a traditional company class model—where members of the ensemble share their rehearsal practice with a general public in an open format—Abolitionist Company Class reimagines the function of rehearsal and study as liberation practice. Curated by Anna Martine Whitehead, a series of in-person workshops will introduce participants to metered hymn singing for grieving and organizing with Ron Ragin. Ragin is an interdisciplinary performance artist that integrates sound, text, and movement. Their creative interests are rooted in music of the African Diaspora, improvisation, liberation aesthetics, and the development and maintenance of spiritual technologies. This workshop is specifically tailored to Black and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) participants. These workshops will take place outside for COVID safety purposes
