An Ode to Elegua

Clowning with jugglers at a traffic intersection in San Juan (Puerto Rico). This was a new kind of challenge for me, to abbreviate show into short, simple acts with exaggerated physical motions (time duration of a traffic light, stage size of a wide intersection, audience seated in stalled/ moving cars). The exercise also read as a channelling + meditation on Elegua, a Santeria spirit who is associated with children, religion, honesty/ communication, tricksters, roads/ intersections, and divination/ prayer.
