DANCING THE BOOK OF RUTH

“Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if even death separates you and me.”

Book of Ruth 1:16-18

 

Inspired by Naomi and Ruth’s story of devotion from the Book of Ruth, this project was designed in part as a site-specific piece and as a lecture-demonstration.
