On Tuesday May 24th Taja Lindley will be participating in SisterSong's webinar about the intersection of art and reproductive justice. Click here to register for the webinar.

"Too many times in the “performing art” world I sit in the audience and think: WTF am I watching? I feel alienated from what is happening on stage. Granted, not every piece of art will speak to me. But there can be a culture in the “art world” (what is that anyway?) to create art for other artists, to create work that is cerebral and requires a lot of thinking. And while I don’t mind working my critical thinking muscle, I want to feel something. To be touched, moved and inspired by what I’m witnessing...And that is my responsibility on stage: to speak my truth –- my medicine. A performance can be a powerful healing opportunity – for me and for the people who witness. So when I prepare for a performance, I prepare to be a vessel of healing and transformation. I pray before I perform and I pray afterwards to ensure that the people who witness aren’t left feeling unraveled."
