Go Forth draws inspiration from the Egyptian Book of the Dead, a text originally intended to provide the deceased with a blueprint to the afterlife. Incorporating analog projections, chanting, and dance, the work animates a series of burial rituals. The audience enters through a photographic installation that provides an initiation into the mythological landscape of the work. The performance proposes burial not as erasure but as offering restitution that creates space for the presence of the absent, the longed for and the imagined.

Kaneza Schaal is a brilliant emerging theater artist, and her piece Go Forth concentrates our season’s essence in a visceral performance. Invoking ancient African myths and rites, it upholds the sacredness of black lives, reawakens us to mortality’s mystery, and reveals the ways that longing for eternal life spurs all human artistry.
