Channeling the funk of Southern musical pioneers like Outkast and Joi, (dis)possessed is a stream of consciousness mixtape listening party. Music, movement, sonic play, video installation, and lyrical monologues address the presentation of the black female body in popular culture through the voices of three female characters – an Emcee, a youthful girl, and a wayward streetwalker.

BLACK BOX is a site for play, dialogue, and creative risk taking that encourages artists of all disciplines to engage with others connected to their subject matter. Each program affords the opportunity for cultural producers to share in-progress works on the art and culture of the African Diaspora in front of a live audience for feedback, engagement, and encouragement. It also provides a space for arts enthusiasts to view compelling work from some of the most exciting and thought-provoking artists working today.
