Nalo Soyini Bruce is a Montreal-based artist, designer, and art director of Caribbean origin. Her mission is to express underlying historical, cultural and psychological dimensions of stories in the worlds of visual art, performance and film. She achieves this primarily through colour relationships, textured surfaces and varied materials. In her scenic, costume and prop design, she sculpts spaces and costumes in cross-pollination with creative teams and in symbiosis with directors and choreographers. As scenic elements are introduced or reoriented, or as outer and inner layers of costumes are revealed, the viewer discovers the deeper layers of people, places and things.
