First category is: PURformance!
I was asked by Kim Anno to perform at her Art for Cuba event at Minnesota Street Project in 2019. I created ensembles for myself and two others and choreographed a dance to “I need your loving” by Teena Marie. We started in hues of brown, orange and bronze and then revealed our pink outfits in the middle of the performance. The dancers are friends of mine and through costume fittings, rehearsals, and performing, we became Le Strange sisters.
My dearest home gurl Channing Morgan told me her father introduced her to Teena Marie. Her love of the song, the musician, and the genre grew due to her dad—a transfer of love. I really felt that in the song and chose the song based off of that. #givinglovereceivinglove
