Suspended Experience at Work | Release: WHRO's one-year anniversary for The Scene

Performed a work I began this summer, which had initial ideas worked out at the Caribbean Studies Association conference in New Orleans, further developed into a piece for Field Studies at Chez Bushwick in Brooklyn, NY, and then this most recent version performed for WHRO's one-year anniversary of The Scene. The piece explores the possibility of dividing my body in half with Haitian Yanvalou in one half of my body and ballet in the other. An interview with Derek Walcott serves as the sound score including an excerpt of his poem, "The Light of the World." His words highlight the desire to communicate most clearly with one's audience and to address the everyday experiences of life...this is the Light of the World.
