          Save Your Soul Jaamil Olawale Kosoko Séancers

          2018 November 09 10 | 19.00

          In English


          Setting the fugitive experience afforded Black people on fire with majesty, opulence, and agency, Séancers is an auto-ethnographic performance work that interrogates issues related to American history, coloniality, and structural oppression. Supported by guest theorist Vanessa E. Thompson and sound artist Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste Jaamil Olawale Kosoko journeys into the surreal and fantastical states of a Black imagination.

          Jaamil Olawale Kosoko is a Nigerian American poet, curator, and performance artist originally from Detroit. His works deal primarily with the experience of loss and it's processing, placing it in the political context of the particularly Black experience of a permanent possibility of disappearance because of racist violent acts. Kosoko lectures, speaks, and performs internationally. His work in performance has toured throughout Europe having appeared in major festivals including Moving in November (Finland), TakeMeSomewhere (UK), SICK! (UK), Tanz im August (Berlin), Oslo Internasjonale Teaterfestival (Norway), Zurich MOVES! (Switzerland), Beursschouwburg (Belgium) and Spielart Festival (Munich). He is a 2017 Princeton Arts Fellow and a 2017 Cave Canem Poetry Fellow.
