Recent Work 

Ronya-Lee and the Light Factory names my commitment to creating work that illuminates and enlightens. In process and performance, I invite participants and witnesses to make discoveries about themselves, others and the world in which they live. My work lives at the intersection of dance and theater; employing West African, modern, and Jamaican folk dance, original music and storytelling. I value listening. I value people and their experiences. I value collaboration. I value Blackness. I value nuance. I value truths. These values shape my work.

Black Madonna & Miss America 

Black Madonna and Miss America is an investigation of socio-political happenings in conversation with the positioning of the Black female icon in public and private spheres-in the church, on the stage and in the streets. This cinematic and multi-disciplinary work explores the intersections between identity, cultural heritage, and pop culture.  

Tell the Truth 

Collaborative project with artist Alonzo Davis and videographer, Lorenzo Wilkins.

Beautiful Struggle
