Premiered at Performance Space 122, as part of an evening of work by women of color. Curated by Prowess DanceArts Collective.

Called “an exuberant tribute to sacred/profane women of African blood,” Elisa is a solo autobiographical work that tells the stories of conjure women who influenced the life of one young woman. From the shores of the Caribbean to the hills of her family’s Virginia homestead, this work demonstrates the many faces of the diaspora in the body of one woman.
