The People’s Ring Shout

May 4, 2024 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

A rectangular scarf with hand-drawn, overlapping text that says "1 of a kind love. Chicago. R E Paige."
Robert Earl Paige, 1OAK - Love, 1998. Hand painted and dyed (batik) silk crepe, 30 x 44 in.

In conjunction with Hyde Park Art Center’s exhibition, The United Colors of Robert Earl Paige, Honey Pot Performance (HPP) presents The People’s Ring Shout, an experimental movement and sound workshop inspired by traditional ring shout rituals. As a core symbol in Honey Pot Performance’s practice, they engage this early Black Americana form of movement, song, and collectivity to explore the power of embodied Black heritage and spirituality. HPP’s exploration of the ring shout derives from their original work Ladies Ring Shout, an evening length performance and celebration of Black women and femme voices, that explored themes such as representation, love, trauma, quality of life, spirituality, healing, and defining communities of care.
