Black Parades.Queer Magics. Directed by Ni’Ja Whitson
April 23, 2021
On Saturday April 24th at 3:30 pm EST, the Yale Dance Lab will premiere Ni’Ja Whitson’s original commission created in collaboration with Tavia Nyong’o’s Black Queer Performance Studies seminar.
A devised public performance that meditates on the magics of migrations, parades, processionals, marches, bodily interventions. Thinking on healing. Thinking on queer and trans holy play. Thinking on a world-making of something else.
Directed and conceived by Yale Dance Lab artist-in-residence Ni’Ja Whitson in collaboration with Tavia Nyong’o and Rhea Sakinah, Andrew Ntim, Emma Pernudi-Moon, Gundula Kreuzer, and Alex Fialho.
