ABOUT THE PROJECT
TETRA is a journey of frequency, exploring how Detroit builds a world of art to transcend trauma. In January 2018, TETRA began presenting mini-experiences or “Road Openers” leading up to a four event festival in 2020.
The TETRA 4 are:
Water – “Chroma Midnight” fuses music and culinary griot-ship to imagine healing technologies.
Earth – “Forge North” blends poetry and dance to reclaim stories of “contemporary ancestors” lost to police brutality.
Fire – “ONUS CHAIN” explores warriorship and disrupting oppressive patterns through Chace Morris’ visual album, ONUS CHAIN.
Air – “On Becoming Unfukwitable” features theater, food and music to heal ancestral lines after sexual abuse.
