Lovingly Called Boat
Co-creator, co-director, performer (2017)
Choreographed and Performed by Dylan Seders Hoffman, Shreshth Khilani, and Sarah Marks Mininsohn
Lovingly Called Boat is hybrid performance piece created collaboratively with Jewish-dance artist Sarah Marks Mininsohn and Hindu-theatre artist Shreshth Khilani. The piece explores each of our individual journeys and shifting relationships with our respective religions and cultures.
We constructed an 8 x 4 foot boat which we subsequently filled with water and immersed our bodies into during the piece. The act of immersion physically connected us but at the same time highlighted our religious differences as we took turns describing our unique connections to boats and water.
Presented at the Community Education Center (Philadelphia) in December 2017.
