Ache what Make

Ache What Make combines urgent poetry, ritual theatre and layered song to reflect on disaster, dignity and death-defying love. Whether she's talking about post-earthquake Haiti, conjuring Jean-Michel Basquiat, or recounting her run-in with a skinhead on a crowded city train, Moïse testifies to stubborn compassion and a playful will to live.


Lenelle Moïse creates jazz-infused, politicized performances about Haitian-American identity and the intersection of race, class, gender, sexuality, memory and magic. Moïse is a Huntington Theatre Company Playwriting Fellow. Her plays and solo performances include MERIT, EXPATRIATE and WOMB-WORDS, THIRSTING. She is the author of HAITI GLASS.
