2017: Eluzre was a collaboration between myself and choreographer Jenny Oliver. Oliver approached me about creating a suit for a Hatian Lua known as Erzule. Erzule is the Haitian African spirit of love, beauty, jewelry, dancing, luxury, and flowers. In this project, the motif comes from Haitian "veve" line drawings and patterns, and I wanted to connect those patterns a sense of cosmic power and universal presence. The black background is both the vastness of black space in the universe, and of course, represents Erzule as spirit of a black women. Jenny Oliver's company commissioned this project through a grant from the New England Foundation for the Arts. This project was completed in 2017, and was used in performance by Modern Connections Dance theater at the We Create Festival in Boston.
