tell Martha not to mourn (1999) HIDVL

This performance marked a turning point in Djola Branner's work. It blurred the boundaries between singers, dancers, and actors, abstracted traditional Haitian and modern dance idiom, African-American narrative and gospel lyrics, and aligned passion and spiritual epiphany.
