Marguerite Hemmings is a Jamaican born, Jersey-raised, NYC-made performance artist/educator currently based in Philadelphia, USA. They focus on one’s own body, one’s own way of moving, adapting, healing, releasing, protecting, changing, and connecting to the unseen. She is a master of body ceremonies. As a choreographer she specializes in emergent, improvisational and social dance movement styles and technologies, rooted in the story of the African Diaspora. She is researching the ancestral and subversive role of dance, and the dancer, throughout the African Diaspora and looks to conjure these technologies through all of their (present) work. They direct a multimedia endeavor called we free, which looks at the millennial and gen z approach to liberation through its music, social dance and social media. we free is centered in the livelihood and reparation of the African continent and diaspora. It’s a social experiment, a conversation, a non-performance, and in moments a critique of, the millennial and get z generations and what we are doing, right now, to be free.
