“A big part of my practice is ritual — that we are not alone in spirit,” says Taja Will. “That our ancestors…are always with us.
Taja is a dancer, choreographer, performer, therapist, healing justice practitioner, and a 2021-22 Jermone Hill Fellow Artist. Their newest piece of choreographed work, a dance film called Líneas de Sangre, explores ceremony, ancestry, and queerness through movement.
Taja talks with KFAI’s Emily Krumberger about presence, ritual, healing, and access within the realms of dance and performance.
