A new musical about a people that create their own community and define their own freedom on their journey to bondage.
Nik described that his intent behind his work is to promote powerful shifts in the world by telling stories in an elevated format that have a personal impact and creating space for disenfranchised voices to share their truths and connect with one another in meaningful ways.
Nik is an artist-in-residence through the Stillwell Institute for Contemporary Black Art’s residency program hosted and supported by Experimental Station.
Multi-talented musical artist, Shawn Wallace, was paired with Nik to mentor him for his residency. Shawn will be leading a free master class for the public as an extension of their work together.
The residency and performances are supported by the Paul M. Angel Family Foundation and The Field Foundation.
