Rainmaker is a performance that leads the people through the drought to an enchantment of the primitive and the tangibility of ritual coming together.
The speed of the present banishes the subtlety of the comprehensive to another space. Rainmaker creates an experience that makes the public part of a journey towards unification. Within the depth of desperation about drought, the performance uses the human body to lure the rain back. She binds telling the transformative power of movement and the importance of recognizing herself as part of a larger whole.
