Brontez Purnell: Cry for Everything Bad that Has Ever Happened


Cry for Everything Bad that Has Ever Happened is a meditation on grief and rage that is part public ritual, part sound experiment. Navigating the space alongside drummers and microphones, participants are asked to scream, run, cry, or be still – whatever fits the mood. This will feed into a live audio recording.

This is intended to be the starting point of resistance against our current political climate and an expression of rage echoed through the cosmos. Someone somewhere will hear us...

Brontez Purnell: Unstoppable Feat, The Dances of Ed Mock and these related programs were made possible in part by a grant from The Creative Work Fund, a program of the Walter and Elise Haas Fund that also is supported by The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Kenneth Rainin Foundation, and the Tides Foundation.
