Va mia duwe means come lets dance in Ewe.
“Our main intention every time we perform is to bring people together, queer BIPOCs to be exact. We want folx to celebrate themselves especially because we tend to forget that there is so much beauty in queer BIPOC bodies. Our parties or whenever we DJ we want queer BIPOCs to be able to liberate their bodies through movement. There is so much joy in watching people free themselves through dancing & just being in the moment.”
How does your community influence your creative process?
The work we are doing is because of the community we have. It would be unthinkable to us to do the things we are doing without our community. It is very important for us to acknowledge and honour the people who have made things possible for us today and for them to see that we appreciate the work they have been doing and still doing today.
