El Diablo y Cristo Negro
 is a series of short scenes influenced by the Black Christ Festival held annually in Portobelo, Panama. The text imagines a complicated, yet close relationship between Black Christ and The Devil and their interactions with two other characters, Psychologist and The Monster. Performers Lisa Harris and  Senalka McDonald engage in dialogue that traverses a range of topics, including but not limited to: existential dilemmas, avant-garde art, black culture, neglected birthdays, religion, and occupational hazards for the supernatural.

4/11 Performance @ The Museum of FIne Arts Houston - Hirsch Library 

Autumn Knight and Lisa E. Harris collaborate on their critical investigation on the idea of accessibility and exclusion.They are sensitized to the moments of inclusion and exclusion, expressed in the spatial designs of the Hirsch Library at various levels; a leery gaze that a security guard casts on them on their ways to the library past the Museum entrance; the Alice Pratt Brown Garden that is so hidden and recalls a private garden of the wealthy family; the back office that is only accessible for the Hirsch staff. Such tension gains a deeper cultural stake in the connection that the artists make with the racial structure.

Knight and Harris imagine the future of the Hirsch Library where the established inclusion-exclusion collapses. Assuming the roles of the future Hirsch staff members, they bring the presence of those who are not included into the space, forcing the audience the experience of exclusion.
