Freya Powell Only Remains Remain Discussion

The pandemic has forced us all into close quarters with ambiguous loss: it's a mourning without closure, a rupture without resolution. Freya Powell took on the topic last month in her performance and panel discussion, drawing connections between the ongoing migration tragedy in Brooks County, Texas and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Freya's performance, Only Remains Remain, used the structure of a Sophoclean chorus to create an elegy for the hundreds of unidentified migrants buried in mass graves in Sacred Heart Cemetery in Brooks County.

The panel included: Cinthya Briones, Alexandra Delano Alonso, Benjamin Nienass, Jamieson Webster and was moderated by Alex Sloane.
