In the performance JunkanooHakkaMama, created by Jodie Lyn-Kee-Chow, the artist and five other performers will engage in a ritualistic representation of the five senses. Drawing from her Jamaican background, and from her Afro-Caribbean and Chinese heritage, Lyn-Kee-Chow embodies the character of a healer who uses herbal remedies and other curative elements, attempting to overcome the trauma of colonial exploitation in order to reconnect the body with nature.
