WHO ?

I love creating, whether it be theatre, djembe drumming, poetry, spoken-word art, a homemade hair product, radio, or a notebook. However, my current focus is theatre performance and workshop facilitation. My artistic practice focuses themes around identity as a Black francophone queer woman of Haitian descent. Delving into how I choose to identify myself on my self-discovery journey, from my traumas to my qualities, is a healing and revolutionary act where I reclaim my power. In my latest play, Quest in my Head, published in Black Solo 3 (Sorplusi Publishing, 2017), the main themes explored were intergenerational and cultural shame that impacts my spiritual beliefs and how honest I can be with myself.

My passion for mental health also brings another layer in the theatre workshops I facilitate to heal collectively and raise awareness on certain issues such as racism, intergenerational trauma, self-esteem to name a few. My workshops are usually targeted for people of colour identifying as women, girls, gender non-binary.

I am currently based in Montreal currently facilitating theatre workshops for i woc up like dis: self-discovery, a workshop series for womxn of color using theatre, and photography for self-discovery, healing, and transformation.
