Jaamil Olawale Kosoko: Séancers [World Premiere]

Run time: 90 minutes

Jaamil Olawale Kosoko’s Séancers 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 the Black imagination to traverse the “fatal” axis of abstraction, illegibility and gender multiplicity.
