Preview of Act II of "Regenesis: An Opera Tentacular," a non-linear story of cyclical life, death, embodiment, and community, set in a world healing from the apocalypse. The narrative is inspired by the Shinto goddess of creation and destruction, Izanami who burns to death giving birth to the world. "Regenesis" is a speculative mythology of channeling supernatural beings who heal the broken body of the earth through collective care.
