Every Time I Feel the Spirit


Our world premiere Zoom commission follows a young, queer pastor attempting to navigate her new congregation’s shift to online worship due to COVID-19. As seasons change outside and the flat timeline of quarantine continues, the church fights to maintain a practice that rotates around fellowship and community across generations and cultures when they can’t hug, cook, or sing together. Every Time I Feel the Spirit is generously supported by a grant from The Tournesol Project.

Run time: 1 hour and 20 minutes, with no intermission
