About this CUNY Adjunct Incubator Project

As part of a research project supported by the CUNY Adjunct Incubator, Nia Love, an Adjunct Professor in Drama, Theatre and Dance at at Queens College, CUNY is developing an ongoing research project, "g1(host)," an unfolding of the term “ghost,” which grapples with what it means to live within conditions shaped by the “afterlife” of slavery.

This project will take the form of a four-part performance installation which is driven by this fundamental query: what remains of the Middle Passage as force, gesture, and affect? In this effort, Nia Love is collaborating with scholar Christina Sharpe to produce choreography in dialog with her groundbreaking text, In the Wake: On Blackness and Being.
