Corbin is interested in creating conversation around Guyanese-American identity by drawing from mythologies of both native and liberated Guyanese peoples. These goals have allowed them to broaden a lexicon that makes real to audiences the joys and struggles of Caribbean people as they acclimate to their hard earned lives in America. Credits include: Specter of Sunlight, Lola in Kinky Boots, 125th and FREEdom, and Hak in Drifting. Continue to follow their story @zennireach across all platforms.
I am a queer Afro Caribbean American whomb being. I don’t have a pronoun preference but I am me, mine and all of us. Out of many, one people. I am a movement performance artist and holistic alchemist. I am a trained full spectrum doula, master Crystal reiki healer, personal trainer, dancer, tarot card reader. I am Leo goddess Queen, child of Mother Earth and father god. I AM. I have answered the call to give back all that I learn by leading the ascension of the collective consciousness, and I choose dance, my body, as the portal. I am here to both be quiet and be loud.
