WORLD PREMIERE DEC. 6-9 ABRONS ARTS CENTER
Setting the fugitive experience afforded Black people on fire with majesty, opulence, and agency, Séancers is a performance work that collapses lyrical poetry, psychic movement forms and strategies of discursive performance to investigate concepts of Black magic, resurrection, and paranormal activity. Interrogating issues related to American history and terrorism, Séancers journeys into the surreal and fantastical states of a Black imagination as it traverses the ‘fatal’ axis of abstraction, illegibility, identity, and gender multiplicity. The work locates itself inside the spiritual, emotional, and theoretical world with the live performances of sound artist Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste and experimental movement artists IMMA, Jaamil Olawale Kosoko, and special guest artist-theorists who will help frame the witnessing of each performance.
