Movement Exploration: Spirituality vs. Ideology

For my composition class assingment that was focused on site-specific work, I wanted to explore my connection to religion and spirituality. I grew up in a Black southern Baptist church, so it is engraved in my DNA. However, as queer woman, I don’t agree with some of the ideological ways of thinking. So for this assignment, I decided to investigate how traces of the Baptist church still resonate within me. Is it possible to have a spiritual connection, even though the religion explicitly casts me out? How do I begin to understand the effects of this conflict of interest has within my moving body?
