I am currently participating in an artist residency at Alice Yard Habitat in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad! I'm working on a hybrid scholarly-performance project, as well as a new series of movement-based pieces - DIS/OBEDIENCE - two of which will premiere at Movement Research at Judson Church this spring.

My Verse Cabaret (combination of poetry and popular songs) performance at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, was standing room only! And my most recent evening-length performance ON PAPER (shown to the left) premiered as a work-in-progress at Dixon Place in NYC to a sold-out crowd! On Paper is funded in part by a Franklin Furnace Fund grant to "create a major new work of performance art in New York City."

My scholarly book Island Bodies: Transgressive Sexualities in the Caribbean Imagination WON THE 2015 LEWIS AWARD FOR BEST CARIBBEAN STUDIES BOOK FROM THE CARIBBEAN STUDIES ASSOCIATION and will be in paperback this summer!

New poems are at Transition (responding to the prompt "I can't breathe"), The Cortland Review," and the new journal The Wide Shore. And a new essay about my performance art is in the beautiful e-misférica journal.
