Happening danspaceproject , co-comissioned with Abrons Arts Center: Ni'Ja Whitson's "Oba Qween Baba King Baba this weekend! Listed as a nytimes must-see performance, Ni’Ja Whitson’s "Oba Qween Baba King Baba" engages spiritual multiplicity and the role of Queerness in the Divine. The work’s title is based on the Yorùbá word “Oba,” which is a genderless term that has come to be known as “a king.” Through movement, poetry, jazz, textile and videoart, Whitson uncovers architectures of the body, space, and sexuality to interrogate power and ways masculinity influences the perceived histories of religion.
