Jojo Abot on Stage
September 7, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
It’s hard to pin the Ghanaian-born Jojo Abot to just one medium; she is equally at home in music, poetry, film, photography, fashion and performance art. She uses all of these forms (and more) in combination in her current overarching project “fyfya wato,” which she defines as new birth/new discovery. Through it, she aims to explore the shared identities that exist beyond the conventional bias of color, race, class or sexual orientation, using self as a tool for discovery. On the ep of the same name, abot dives into the history of the women in her family to tell stories of love, strength and sacrifice, and to talk about how ideas get transferred between generations.
