Davia Spain is a dynamic performing artist, transformative presenter, informed educator, and filmmaker who uses her various platforms as opportunities to speak truth to power. Through her work, she taps into the healing abilities that performance art offers both on and off stage. She believes that by utilizing the radical potential of movement and song as vehicles for change we can reach a destination of collective rejuvenation and transformation. Her understanding of our world has been shaped by her unique positionality as a Black Trans Woman, rooting her in the understanding that change is only possible when a shift in power structures occurs. And this is where her work lies, as a relayer of information about how this change can happen in ways that sustainably uplift disenfranchised peoples - namely black trans femmes. Due to the intense adversity she faces, Davia is deeply invested in offering her skills and knowledge to the efforts of creating more opportunities for people like her to be given revered positions of power in our society.
