Nia Witherspoon: Priestess of Twerk
Nia Witherspoon presents Priestess of Twerk, her Creative Capital Project-in-development at Links Hall in Chicago, IL.
A Black feminist temple of pleasure, Priestess of Twerk is inspired by the “bad bitches” of hip hop, the reproductive justice movement, and sacred sex workers that graced ancient Egyptian temples.
This extraordinary, theatrical collaboration between creatives from New York and Chicago invites audiences into the world of Priestess of Twerk through a ritual concert (December 9th at 8pm) and immersive temple experiences (December 10th at 3pm & 9pm).
Priestess of Twerk features the work of: DREEEMY (aka Reem Abdou) (Sound designer/Performer), Jenn Freeman (aka Po’Chop) (Performer/Installation Design), Jack Fuller (Music Director/Performer), Justin Hicks (Sound Dramaturg/Witness), Brandi Holt (Costume Designer), Serena Ebony Miller (Performer/ Cello), Caren Celine Morris (Production Stage Manager), Shelley Nicole (Performer), and Anna Martine Whitehead (Dramaturg), and Nia Witherspoon (Creator/Performer).
