BECOMING dreams of alternate paths in the journey of perpetual becoming leading to substantial transformation through the embodiment of monstrous feminine narratives in Caribbean cross-cultural imaginations. Cosmic mirrors, conjoined attires, shifting braided manes, and choreographic compositions disassemble and reassemble, disassemble and reassemble, disassemble and reassemble these chimeric cyborgs as they navigate different scales of paradoxical transformation. These blasphemous sacred beings become an intimate frame of contradictions and affinities—from fear, terror, and uncertainty, to power, beauty, and vulnerability—and back.

TL;DR: This piece takes the form of a performance film that navigates significant transformation by embodying monstrous feminine narratives in Caribbean cross-cultural imaginations through choreography, design, and film.
