Everyone prays differently

A ritualistic space proposing new perspectives about the connection between spirituality and nature. In contrast to vision, this piece stimulates other senses like hearing and touch to move away from everyday habits often associated with technological advancements and the appreciation of pure reason. Everyone prays differently uses the speech of Afro-Brazilian religious believers in a dialogue with the audience, thus shedding light on ancestral traditions like oral storytelling.
