This work intersects with the topics <vibrations><visions><voices> in multiple ways. It intersects with Vibrations as it connects to the vibrations of the ocean, and well as the potential of ritual, also a vibration, to heal a person or a community. The works calls on voices of ancestors, my own and those of community/audience members, as well as voices and dreams of their children. And it asks for visions for the future that connect cultures and communities, and through this makes a humble attempt to heal wounds of colonial histories.
