Marguerite Hemmings

Marguerite Angelica Monique is a Jamaican-born, Jersey-raised, NYC-made performance artist/educator currently based in Philadelphia, USA. They focus on one’s own body, one’s own way of moving, adapting, healing, releasing, protecting, changing, and connecting to the unseen. She is a master of body ceremonies and a curator of vibes.

As a choreographer, she specializes in emergent, improvisational, and social dance movement styles and technologies, rooted in the story of the African Diaspora. She is researching the ancestral and subversive role of dance and the dancer throughout the African Diaspora and looks to conjure these technologies through all of their (present) work. Marguerite uses body, text, media, and moving image in their work.
