Re-Frame: The Progress of Works
Friday, April 13th at 7:00pm
An evening of innovation at Rumble Arts Center, in association with Insight Arts and D UNDERBELLY
A distinctive evening reflecting the progress of artist Sojourner Wright from Re-Frame: A Gathering – an innovative project of D UNDERBELLY focused on creative process and community building. This past winter, a community of artists, curators and facilitators from all over Chicago, gathered for 7 weeks; re-framing, through rigorous experimentation & investigation of critical feedback, the way they think about process, collaboration and the development of performance works. Re-Frame: The Progress of Works shows us how artists have continued to explore creative process through the progress of new work, further examination of their body of work or experimentation with an existing work.
Come for the opportunity to witness intriguing work, home cooked food and engaging discussions.

In contrast to a world of repressed emotions, missed psychic connections & voids filled with over consumption, Sojourner cultivates an organic space of healing, right in her home’s center – the kitchen. Passages from Maya Tiwari’s Book Aryuveda: A life of Balance become the catalyst for transformation and healing during this interactive evening further infused by sprinklings of poetic narrative & movement vignettes fueled by the transformative powers of the 5 elements (fire, water, air, earth, space). There will be collective baking, snacking and good ‘ole fashioned talking’ around the kitchen table. Not to mention a smokin’ hot dance party in the middle of it all. You will leave ‘I Am Sadhana’ with a new experience of what it means to throw down in the kitchen.
Sojourner Zenobia Wright is a graduate of the School at Steppenwolf class of ’09. She has also trained with Chicago’s Piven Theater and Black Box Studio. She is a graduate of Naropa Universities BFA in Interdisciplinary Performance. At Naropa she found ways in which to work with her mind, emotions, body and spirit in order to fully become a vessel for her fullest creative self. Sojourner began creating her own work in the fall of ’08 through Soul Journey Projects. “What is meaningful to me in the creative process is distilling the purest truth and sharing it with articulated presence…deep listening and witnessing each other in our stories as well as in the revelations behind those stories. “
