The Unarrival Experiments #1
Ni'Ja Whitson 
Performed by The NWA Project - Kirsten Flores-Davis and Ni'Ja Whitson
July 21 & 22, at 8PM*

The Unarrival Experiments #1 is the first excerpted embodiment from Ni'Ja Whitson's forthcoming hybrid book: Time Trickle 'Cross You (The Hunted), the second in a trilogy of works that (re)imagines non-binarism in Black/Queer histories and mythologies.  The Unarrival series explores the vaporous body: those who refuse to become and exist in the noplace, the act and strategies of nonbeing as ancient futurist technologies.  It looks to find the bodies where there are none.  It explores liminality as a locale of the free and the sacred for the hunted of us. 
About Ni'Ja Whitson: An award-winning interdisciplinary artist, performer and writer, Ni'Ja Whitson (MFA), has been referred to as "majestic" and "magnetic" by the New York Times and is recognized by Brooklyn Magazine as a culture influencer.  Recent awards include a Hedgebrook residency, LMCC Process Space Residency, Bogliasco Fellowship, Brooklyn Arts Exchange Artist Residency, two-time Creative Capital "On Our Radar" award including being in its inaugural recipients. Whitson is founder/artistic director of The NWA Project.

Co-Presented by The Invisible Dog Art Center and Brooklyn Arts Exchange - BAX
