“Nothing could have prepared [the audience] for grimes’ electric stage presence. It’s as if his every nerve and muscle was illuminated from within.” —Los Angeles Times

“Black pain is very profitable in this country; we are focused on black joy.”  —d. sabela grimes


“One of a mere handful of artists who make up the vanguard of hip-hop fusion,” (Los Angeles Times) d. Sabela grimes brings ELECTROGYNOUS to Chicago from his home of Los Angeles. After years as a company member with hip-hop pioneer Rennie Harris, grimes developed a movement system derived from black vernacular social-dance practices, music, activism, and their interconnectedness. ELECTROGYNOUS imagines the inclusion of liberated Black bodies at the center of the performance. Featuring video art by Meena Murugesan and digital illustration by Mr. Maxx Moses, ELECTROGYNOUS brings new speculative realities to the stage.
