Through a dubwize approach to performance, we can create and empower textures, emotive transmutations and our own narratives and responses to the rigors of everyday life, we can create community, name the nameless & un-nameables, craft language & linguistic interventions and align politics and aesthetics. In this interactive master class we will explore and experiment with various strategies to create and voice individual and collective works with special attention to new and exciting movements with grassroots revolutionary zeal and Black aesthetics.
