As part of the River to River Festival
When I return who will receive me is an ongoing installation that uses research from the performance piece, Poor People’s TV Room. Merging performance art, theater, dance and music, when I return who will receive me is inspired by embodied protest practices of Nigerian women in the 1920’s, forgotten narratives of resistance, speculative fiction and the Nollywood cinema industry of Nigeria. Audiences are welcome to go from room to room at Fort Jay Magazine to experience different parts of this installation.
