An autobiographical solo performance portraying memories of strong, beautiful and black women. Colleen explores her personal diasporic identity by revisiting tidbits passed on to her from her grandmother, mother, sister, and other strong female influences, including their cultures, stories, foods, dances, clothes, hair, songs and words.
The work is informed by the family recipe she is desperate to learn, the dances she watched her sister do her whole life, or simply the way these women carry themselves. Colleen "carves a space for us to celebrate black women." She says, "Putting the body on stage is an act of protest. The work serves as an urgent declaration that black women are important, beautiful and magical."
