Jaamil Olawale Kosoko sets the fugitive experience afforded Black people on fire with majesty, opulence, and agency. Engaging the spiritual, emotional, and theoretical he remixes American history with afro-futurist/afro-pessimist ideologies. In Séancers, Kosoko activates lyrical poetry and movement forms, working with sound artist Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste,and a guest Séancer. They examine the chameleon-like strategies for subverting the ways in which racialized bodies are structurally organized.

Kosoko is a Nigeria-American poet, curator, and performance artist originally from Detroit, MI. He is a 2017-19 Princeton Arts Fellow and a 2018 NEFA NDP Award recipient.
