Working across myriad disciplines, Detroit-based multidisciplinary artist, performer, filmmaker and harpist, Ahya Simone’s many pronged practice is bound by an exploration of Black identity, aesthetics, and vulnerability. Ahya’s versatile approach to harp and vocal artistry includes classical, jazz, and soul and creates an almost mesmerizing on-stage moment. As an emerging filmmaker, Simone developed “Femme Queen Chronicles,” a web-series sponsored by the Trans Sistas of Color Project and the Detroit Narrative Agency 2.0. With her performance at Kammer 1, Ahya presents “Iridescence” – a loose story of becoming – revealing even. Using her image as a main visual subject, Ahya Simone explores her universe – visually, sonically, and lyrically. Revealing herself is at her discretion. From lush harp loops and electronic sounds to silhouettes and striking shapes, she wrestles with the balance of belonging to herself and others.
The ticket is valid for "Keynote" in Kammer 1 as well.
