Take Me to the Water is a spiritual moment through performance that pays homage to the sacred rite of passage of being baptized in the Black Church. Growing up in a Black community, Harrison Guy has what he likes to call “Bone Deep Memories.” These are lasting recollections of rich and profound experiences that are often directly related to the Black Church. Being a candidate for baptism in 1984 at the age of 8 is one of his Bone Deep Memories that was transformational and rests in his spirit as one of the most pivotal moments of his adolescent years. This performance uses music, dance, multimedia, and poetry to whisper to the waters and listen as it recalls.
