Drè un Kayè

Brief Description:

An exploration of the relationships to the African Diaspora and how we all feel lost in different ways having left many of us feeling disconnected, searching for something we can’t fully articulate. This piece was in process and in conjunction with Searching For Wonder, short film directed and conceived by Greg Osei choreographed by Abdiel that deals with the tremendous power we have to rediscover & reimagine ourselves through our ancestors, gods, cultures and interconnectedness. I dedicate this piece to the late Nahounou Diamond Suzanne Zouzoua, my grandmother–na da da.
