Destiny Be
How I Learned to Smile, Only Halfway, With My Cheeks Still Low

in collaboration with Devin N. Morris
Friday, July 14, 2017 | 7 - 9pm

Destiny Be will present her very first multi-media performance, including clothing designs made in collaboration with Devin N. Morris, and original video, choreography, poetry and sound. The piece was inspired by her poem “Encased in Shimmer and Shards of Mirror” and a collaborative dressmaking project between herself and Devin N. Morris . The performance will unveil the psyche of Black femme consciousness, and interpret the immaterial forces that effect and mold that particular identity consciousness. The dresses made in collaboration with Devin N. Morris articulate femininity within all bodies and the textiles reference textures and materials of the interiors of their childhood memories.
