Jordan and I selected Mules and Men and The Sanctified Church, both by Zora Neale Hurston, out of an ongoing, deep love and interest in Black American mythology. The Sanctified Church compiles her writings on the Black church, while Mules and Men is a compilation of folk tales collected from Black southerners. Both of these texts have become a kind of bible as we feel into our Black queer spiritual life together, both as creative and romantic partners.
I am a multidisciplinary Griot and Director. I think of my work as trying to find that which is holy, whole, holistic and/ or holds within Black performance functionality. I do this aesthetically through spiritual surrealism and traditional folkloric techniques and have created/ fostered techniques based on mythological archetypes, African American Southern Rituals, Underground Queer performance culture and Visual Conjurin.
