facilitation team & staff
nissy aya, core facilitator
Nissy Aya is a Black girl from the Bronx. She and all her younger selves tell stories and tall tales. As a facilitator and cultural worker, we believe in the transformative nature of storytelling by placing those most affected by oppressive systems in the center. We, also, view theatre as a tool to create social change by empowering disenfranchised communities to unapologetically portray their whole selves on stage. As an artist, our work centers the voices of Black Femmes, explores the lines between history and memory, and details both the presence and absence of love.
