This work charters the odyssey of a young black woman, unravelling her history and discovering her true identity. The mask of her painted face returns hauntingly throughout the narrative and hints at her buried rage. The stunning performance of Oat Pattron, combined with dance and poetry, explores the myth and reality of black women's lives.
