“Sweet and ferocious at the same time.” Rhodessa Jones

WHERE THERE ARE VOICES

 

Rooted in the critically-acclaimed poems from her book, Haiti Glass, Where There Are Voices* (in development) is Lenelle Moïse’s artistic response to the January 2010 earthquake that devastated her birthplace. This solo performance combines urgent poetry, ritual theatre and layered song to reflect on environmental disaster, dignity and death-defying love. Whether she's talking about post-earthquake Haiti, conjuring Jean-Michel Basquiat, or recounting her run-in with a skinhead on a crowded city train, Moïse testifies to stubborn compassion and a playful will to live. Where There Are Voices invokes brilliant ancestors, current luminaries, and fleeting foes to celebrate a receptive heart in all its chipped or chipper wakefulness. Written and performed by Lenelle Moïse. Set design by Vanessa Vargas. *Formerly known as Ache What Make
