For the public portion of his residency, Kyle shares his process with Jah, a solo tapping into of his Jamaican heritage. As a member of the diaspora Kyle has felt distant from my maternal homeland. With Jah, he is interested in examining and reclaiming his Jamaican body, diving into questions surrounding hyper-masculinity, queerness and redemption. Seen as an online lecture demonstration, viewers will have an inside look into a process of uncovering. Movement participation will be employed to have the audience consider their relationship to the bodies and homeland.
