FEATURING
Z Tye Richardson
Trans Baptism is an ancestral blessing of two trans disciples and a purification of heteronormative upbringing. With the help of another trans-identified person, Richardson attempts to cleanse the body of cisgender assignments in hopes of realigning their spirit, while strengthening bonds between fallen trans ancestors.

Zachary Tye Richardson is a Brooklyn-based artist who is interested in physical investigations, including but not limited to: movement, voice, theatre, and fashion. Richardson explores concepts through movement designs that are created for the viewer’s personal interpretation. She is intrigued with somatic relations and how they associate with emotional connectivity. These works are intended to serve as queer offerings to LGBTQIA-POC communities. Richardson continues to research the kinesthetic body with instinctual energy to fulfill their curiosity.
