Bone-Setting Service is an one-on-one encounter looking at the relationship between physical and emotional pain. How emotional pain and heart-breaking experiences connect with one’s own body motivates this performance. A visitor at a time is invited to share a personal story about brokenness and receive a massage to re-set the fractured.
