3 RITES: LIFE, LIBERTY, HAPPINESS by DELIRIOUS Dances/Edisa Weeks is a series of three interactive performance rituals that integrate dance, live music, text, visual installations, community discussions and shared meals to humorously and poignantly interrogate why life, liberty and happiness were included as unalienable rights in the United States Declaration of Independence. Performed consecutively, in tandem, or as stand alone works, 3 RITES explores what the right to life, liberty, and happiness means today, who has access to these rights, and how they manifest in the body.

Estimated Artist Fee: $5,730 - $17,880/performance plus travel + housing; $7,130 - $49,000/week plus travel + housing
