Looking through a diaspora lens, Ache What Make combines urgent poetry, ritual theatre and layered song to reflect on disaster, dignity and death-defying love. Whether she's talking about post-earthquake Haiti, conjuring Jean-Michel Basquiat, or recounting her run-in with a skinhead on a crowded city train, Moïse testifies to stubborn compassion and a playful will to live. Ache What Make invokes brilliant ancestors, current luminaries, and fleeting foes to celebrate a receptive heart in all its chipped or chipper wakefulness. Written and performed by Lenelle Moïse. Set design by Vanessa Vargas.
