Mami Wata & The PussyWitch Hunt, recently published by Playwright's Canada Press in the anthology Queer Play edited by Moynan King.centres on gender, sexuality, and the erotic through the life of four friends – Niki, Michael, Kizzy and Everdon – growing up in present­day Jamaica, who are challenged to re­negotiate their complex relationship under revised ‘anti­buggery’ laws. Raised in the violence and silence of misogyny and homophobia, Niki lives on the margins of church, the burlesque­ pole and womxn’s thighs. As the play unfolds we learn that Niki is not the only one living onclouds and in shadows. Mami Wata is anitafrika’s continued exploration of divinity, activism and the Black diaspora through the Yoruba's  Ifa Orishas: Ochun (river goddxss of childbirth and erotic love), Yemoja (mother goddxss of the sea), and Oya (goddxss who defends and protects womxn). Enjoy this beautifully filmed performance of the production by Lucius Dechausay.
