The body makes itself vapor / Or it is before it can be / Our time together will conjure / Locate / Shape Shifting as process / Strategy / Technology / Physical research/play/experiment in rigor will ground and incite / Writing will deepen and excavate

An award-winning interdisciplinary artist, performer and writer, Ni’Ja Whitson, has been referred to as “majestic” and “powerful” by the New York Times, winning dozens of awards across disciplines while engaging a nexus of postmodern and African Diasporic performance practices, intersecting gender, sexuality, race, and spirit. Recent awards include an Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Process Space Residency, Bogliasco Fellowship, Brooklyn Arts Exchange Artist Residency, two-time Creative Capital "On Our Radar" award including being among its inaugural group. As a practitioner of indigenous and diasporic African ritual and resistance forms, Whitson creates work that reflects the sacred in performance and transformative workshop/facilitation. Proudly, they collaborate with notables in experimental and conventional theatre, dance, visual art, and music including Sharon Bridgforth and Douglas Ewart, as well as other leaders such as Dianne McIntyre, Charlotte Brathwaite, Regina Taylor, Oliver Lake, Edward Wilkerson Jr., Daniel Alexander Jones, Marjani Forté-Saunders, and Baba Israel. Ni’Ja Whitson is currently on faculty at the New School for Liberal Arts and is the founder/artistic director of The NWA Project.

Peace friend. I'm not able to make it this weekend due to a conflict with my mother's fundraiser. Hope to see you before you start your journey to the west. Be in touch. Be well.
