Conversations: Over Circles is the first in a series of performances by the Sobia Ahmad and Monroe Isenberg. Their collaborative body of work explores a shared interest in their Islamic and Jewish mystical traditions and ways of knowing. Through contemplative repetition, they create reimagined rituals that approach a communion with the invisible. The artists believe these silent conversations are pathways towards (re)connection and intimacy with land and place. As they walk and enter into dream-like states that tune their consciousness and perception, they activate their relationship with each other and the ground.
