Flesh & Spirit II (1992)

Flesh & Spirit II (1992) HIDVL

This performance integrates music, text, and several dance idioms, including traditional Haitian, modern, and (a touch of) Maori haka. It aligns visual and spoken narrative, along with sacred and secular rites, representing an approach to theater-making that Djola Branner would revisit time and again.
