How to make Hotwater Cornbread*


Through the act of live performance, the connectedness of secular and sacred rituals is considered. I am interested in the fact that cornmeal is a nutritional staple as well a ritualized item in traditional spiritual practices. This work is the first in a series of performance works in which I will explore substances that have a similar significance.
