“Written by Dominican dancer, journalist, curator, and author Alanna Lockward, with illustrations by Gabriela Vainsencher, an Israeli artist of Argentinean origin, Marassá y la Nada (Berlin, 2004) is an unusual gift of poetry and intellect. As it exudes love for the crux of lands and identities of Saint-Domingue/Santo Domingo, this text embraces poetry, wisdom, allegorical characters, and thought-provoking spaces – along with an incredible openness to nature, to one’s ancestors, to the invisible and imperceptible.” Sophie Maríñez.
