Ritual was an immersive, theatrical open house that featured interviews about the early Covid lockdown, a period where ceremonies like funerals and weddings were impossible. The audience was invited to reflect, grieve, laugh, and commune with others about a time when the most meaningful moments in our lives went missing. Hosted at Wonderland in the Bywater, New Orleans.
