The 14th Episode of House/Full of BlackWomen:
New Chitlin Circuitry: Reparations Vaudeville
Laveau, performed by Cathleen Riddle, is a public ritual for the healing and protection of the black femme spirit. A callback conjuring of our ancestral womb blood, divine connection to water and nature and our lineage black girl magi noir. Through song, dance, storytelling and ancient ritual we conjure Laveau. The piece serves as a haunting of New Orleans’ most powerful Vudu Queens Marie Laveau the first and second, in the time of Covid, racial uprising and the housing crisis among black and brown women and artists today, for healing.
Come wearing bright colors in honor of your favorite Goddess!
