Deneishia LeArtiste “Origin Story” Screening and Artist Talk

East Window Presents – Deneishia LeArtiste “Origin Story” Screening and Artist Talk

June 27th 2024
7:00 – 9:00pm


Bringing her personal biography to life with “Origin Story”, Deneishia LeArtiste (she/her) joins East Window this June to share the pathways she has walked in this life. In collaboration with Melissa Ivey (the Musical Doula), LeArtiste’s “Origin Story” became a ballad; a soundtrack. Both a reflection and a statement, “Origin Story” brings together powerful imagery, with poignant spoken word, and music directed, composed, and produced by Melissa Ivey. To celebrate the birth of “Origin Story” into the world, LeArtiste simultaneously released “Fu*k The Fairy Tale: The Art of Living Happily Ever After”. She will share a short reading from this book during her time at East Window this June.

Deneishia LeArtiste is a performance artist embracing the storytelling traditions of her ancestry. Answering the call of the Western European bard, the West African Griot, and the Ogallala traditions of teaching through tales, LeArtiste unites our communities by telling our stories. She processes and explores her ancestral experiences through poetry, visual arts, music, and movement. To date, LeArtiste has authored two books: “Everything Hurts” and “Fu*k The Fairy Tale: The Art of Living Happily Ever After”. She currently resides in Hawaii, where she is celebrating her own version of happily ever after.
