"El Amor En Tiempos De Trump" is the culmination to a day-long symposium on queer of color criticism and performance at Tufts University. The night will highlight the work of two artists from the symposium (NIC KAY & Victor I. Cares), and feature three local drag artists (Jayden Jamison KA St. James, Queen JP, Emphysema Menthol One-Hundreds).
In these terrifying times, can QTPOC artists save the night?
NIC Kay is from the Bronx. Currently occupying several liminal spaces. They are a person who makes performances and creates/organizes performative spaces. They are obsessed with the act and process of moving the change of place, production of space, position, and the clarity/meaning gleaned from shifting of perspective. NIC’s current transdisciplinary projects explore movement as a place of reclamation of the body, history and spirituality.NIC has shown work, spoken on panels and hosted workshops at numerous venues throughout the United States and International. In 2016 they developed a web series called the Bronx Cunt Tour around their debut solo performance lil BLK for Open TV, which premiered in April 2016. NIC Kay is currently a 2017 Movement Research Artist-in-Residence Van Lier Fellow in New York City.
