Afromystic Experimental Performance

Afromystic Experimental Performance


Have you wanted to know if there is space in Òrìṣà practice for QTPOC & LGBTQ?

Do you know of stories/Odu’s of LGBTQ within Òrìṣà practice?

Do you want to create your own story and share it with the world?

Come to the Afromystic Experimental Performance & writing workshop at BAAD! Discuss mythology exploring Queer aspects of the Òrìṣà’s, using these stories to create our own with gestures/movements and culminating in a showing of our work together.
