"Exercising our birthright to be feeling beings, bound by inevitable transformations and uploads, running radical love programming and glitching across the status quo, uniting mycelium, weaving in wandering liminaly making connections. Futurity Artist and SoMad present Activation TV - shows about channeling, about Black trans sorcery and wizardry sprinkled in and throughout the mundane, a glimpse into Pluto underworld and beyond!" Kamra of Activation Residency
Activation TV is a project conceptualized, directed and produced in collaboration with SoMad and Kamra of Activation Residency The 3 shows - Black Feels, Black Gaze and Show and Tea, features live performances and intimate conversations with artists, organizers and leaders championing equity. All episodes were edited in collaboration with each featured artist. All together the Activation TV channel have 20 episodes ranging from 12 to 40 minutes, topics of race, gender and identity are discussed through the lens of lived experiences of those doing the work to create a better future.
With this project, we worked to create a space where these intimate conversations are not only supported, but celebrated, providing the audience access to raw and candid futurity and transformation rarely witnessed in a watching experience.
