skin, voice & memories of someone else…
moravia naranjo & the diving home band

skin, voice & memories of someone else… is a solo dance performance with life music of “the diving home band”. in this work, I explore the voice of the exile, traversing the complexities of displacement, dislocation and home that are carried within one body. I am singing. I have lost my own skin, notwithstanding, I remember all the voices that are inscribed within me, voices that are traveling through my own substance. the piece is inspired by the lives, texts and songs of billie holiday (usa), la lupe (cuba), violeta parra (chile), miriam makeba (south africa) and lillian allen (jamaica/canada).
