Sable International

The title Sable International signifies in French and English. The performer scatters sand and travels with movement representing Legba/Ellegua, god of crossings and crossroads in Santería/Vodoun/Orisha. The performer—clad in white like a nurse or priestess—and those who follow her represent immigrants from lands of sand to North America.
