Director Statement

SASQUAGE is a story about ΛGE: A character who combines his love of a number of artistic expressions: music, visual imagery, and dance into a story about his existence. The piece is completely his vision: from the writing to finding the sonics, to directing and editing the visuals. Through his music, videos, and practice of movement, the piece is an exploration of Black manhood from his perspective while attempting to break the stereotypes of Black men through an impressionistic re-imagining of the narrative of the Legend of Sasquatch lightly being seen through the lens of Ralph Ellison’s novel, Invisible Man.
