This is behind the scenes. We serve 10 courses, so usually, we set up all the "dishes" and performance items up prior to heading out into the dinner space.
Here I am drawing the veve on the table.
And the final table installation around which guests sit.
An installation in the space.
Details of Oshun's Altar.
Our costumes... Wura-Natasha's references Nigerian/Yoruba aesthetics; Ana Lara's (mine) references Dominican voudoun/gaga aesthetics.
This is the dinner table after the performance. Traces of peoples' presence, conversations lingering in the air, finger markings along the edges of the table cloth and placemats.
