Artist: Kaytie Eaton and fellow actor, Chris Domig
Description: Spoken Word Performance
In Walking on Water, Madeline L’Engle reflects that we serve a God who chooses “his artists with as calm a disregard for surface moral qualifications as he chooses his saints.” What appeals to me about this station of the cross is how God chooses Simon, how He names Simon, more than likely against his will, into the story of the cross and how that act of grace transforms him. As for medium, I am interested in what it would be to hear this story first hand, in a vocabulary and voice that resonates with the world we live into today – the mix of the archaic and the modern vernacular.
