Bruja // Fugitive Majesty is evening length solo woven from her personal mythology. Will creates the magical world of her genetic and artistic identity. As a queer, transracial adoptee she has come to know herself as a cultural fugitive, taking on personality as it fits; shape-shifting as way to escape displacement; this is the preservation of identity. Bruja, meaning Witch in Spanish explores the archetypal characters of the Queen, Warrior, Lover and Healer. Through these archetypes the mythology of the soul is allowed to emerge, Will does this with the support of her Energy Medicine practice and improvisation. A long time devotee of improvisation, Will creates an aesthetic of spontaneity with the body and voice, resulting in dynamic, three dimensional, contemporary performance.
