Terce: A Practical Breviary is a radical rethinking of a monastic 9:00 AM mass and an adaptation that reimagines the face of the “Holy Spirit” through the lens of the Divine Feminine. Sung by a community choir of 30-plus caregivers and makers, it is a wild meditation/celebration of the sacred mothers alive in all of us and how that manifests in regard to the Earth, each other and ourselves. Inspired by ideas taken from three primary female mystics (Julian of Norwich, Hildegard von Bingen and Robin Wall Kimmerer) this non-narrative song cycle blends new music, neo-soul and gospel with traditional medieval organum—is percussed with active caretaking and craft making and is danced wildly. More of an event than an opera, it is built as an active ritual to celebrate and venerate our feminine alignment with nature and recover from living in the confines of a civilization built to control or ignore it.

Commissioned, developed and produced through HERE&Back as part of PROTOTYPE: Opera | Theatre | Now.
