Brighton Festival: Jaamil Olwale Kosoko - Séancers
Performance artist Jaamil Olawale Kosoko conjours themes of paranormal activity, loss and resurrection as he explores black identities through his work. Hailing from Detroit, Michigan, Kosoko draws on his own experiences, including the deaths of family members, as well as inspiration form other art forms in a piece that brings together movement, song, spoken word and a live score from Bessie award winning composer Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste.
For these performances in Brighton Festival the 'Guest Séancer' will be London-based writer, performance artist and teacher Season Butler.
Recommended for ages 14+
