Event Details

Join us at the YES! House on Saturday, May 6th, 6-8PM for a unique performance! Bundles & Burdens is a durational performance where artist Catherine Reinhart methodically wraps bundles of her son’s hair. This somber performance marks the passage of time, invisible labor, and small accumulations of loss that gather in the maternal experience.
What is lost and what is held?
How do we track the rituals of motherhood?
What incremental griefs and tender gestures remain invisible?
This is a public and free come and go event, with appetizers and refreshments provided!
