I made this film collage in January 2011 two months into my 4-month self-directed dance/art/cultural discovery residency in Trinidad. I assembled this wanting to share some of what my world was like for my families back home, and for my new communities welcoming me into their spaces in Trinidad. It’s a classic favorite of mine. The stories are yet complete, but it’s fun to revisit the makings of a journey whenever I can.
The first part of my residency was with the Makeda Thomas Dance & Performance Institute.
