The power of ritual
In this series, award-winning artist Grayson Perry creates rites of passage for real Britons to help them through the most significant milestones of contemporary life. Each of these rituals involves a ceremony that Grayson designs with the contributors, as well as ritual art objects that Grayson makes. Grayson believes that rites of passage – which we’ve either lost, or are now commercially-driven shells – are essential to our emotional health and happiness. In these compelling, moving and entertaining films, Grayson helps people get married, celebrate birth, come of age and prepare for death.
