What is the emotional toll of living in a world in opposition to your existence? In what ways do we disassociate as an act of survival? How often do we stifle our own grief or distill our righteous anger into something more palatable? Kavi Ade’s poetry is a lamentation, a leaning in to what haunts the spirit of a Black Trans Queer body. With poems that are deeply personal while inescapably political Ade’s work grapples with being set at the throne of violence.

Join Kavi Ade for a mixed media performance that moves through time, chronicling despair, grasping at hope, and exploring the ways a body can learn to survive.

About 12x12

Join Intercultural Journeys and the Leeway Foundation on second Wednesdays from May through September for a powerful exploration of astonishing art and the exceptional artists that make it.

It's a simple formula: 12 minutes of performance. 12 minutes exploring an artist's practice. 12 minutes for the audience to ask questions. Take a 12 minute break. And begin again.

Tickets: $12 or pay-what-you-can ($1 minimum).
