“Ritual, Andromeda trapped in
her nappy edges, galaxies
between immovable thighs.” -I. Sims
I’ve been elated and challenged and witness to a group of performers interacting with the idea of Afrofuturism.
Recently I had the distinct pleasure of producing a show at Gay City Health Project in Seattle. The show is called 2155: An exploration of Afrofuturism in Performance Art.
It has brought some of the fiercest brown performers in Seattle to one stage:
They built work around race, gender, sexuality, other-ness, and fierceness. As the show winds down I am filled with so much gratitude and humility. These folks trusted me enough to create a space for their work. That is the greatest honor any producer can have- holding space for greatness.
If you are in Seattle this weekend, come see the show!
