Dee Jumbie Dance: A Resurrection (Book Launch)
Jamal Gerald’s book Dee Jumbie Dance: A Resurrection is being launched by Live Art Development Agency.
Based on JUMBIE, the performance Jamal Gerald created, which resurrected the Jumbie dance of Montserrat. Part ritual, part party, part sex dungeon – and fully WTF. Although never presented to an audience, it will now remain archived.
A chaotic, playful and naughty artist book. Including Jumbie stories, essays, reflections, photography and artistic responses. Highlighting the research and creative process, queerness, BDSM, ancestry and healing.
A lost dance. A lost show. A story.
Contributors: Lee Affen, Mele Broomes, Rosie Elnile, Khadijah Ibrahiim and Ajamu X.
