12 Days of Performance: James Massiah – NOWNESS

To see out 2018 with a bang we’ve brought together some of our favorite dancers, musicians, movers, and shakers to share their genre-breaking powers in a new series of capsule performances directed by NOWNESS’ own creative director Bunny Kinney.

We’ll be releasing a new film each day for twelve days, holding a mirror up to the diverse creative worlds we’ve explored over the past twelve months.

A poet known for mixing musical elements into his verse, Dazed 100 alum James Massiah hits a reflective note with his reading of an original poem musing on what the future holds as we approach the new year. Known for combining stories of street culture with meditations on gentrification, his work often offers a deep insight into London, the city he calls home – as shown in the video for No Body No Mind.

“We’re celebrating true craft and talent in a joyful way,” says Bunny Kinney about 12 Days of Performance. “Each film is a small, simple portrait of an artist or ensemble performing an improvised work. We asked everyone to just let go and do their thing, and each of them worked with us on the overall creative direction of their video—which will be brought together into one final, collaborative film.”

Enjoy 12 Days of Performance then watch the full film on Christmas Day
