When he was planning this year's Process Series, artistic director Joseph Megel couldn't possibly have predicted how much we'd need a festival devoted to unconventional political resistance in performance this February. In Spoken Word/Spoken Justice: A Festival of Spoken Word Performance, Mohammad Moussa's multimedia work "Shattered Glass" reflects upon the lives and shooting deaths of three Muslim students in Chapel Hill on the anniversary of their killing. Intersectionality figures into Jaclyn Gilstrap and CJ Suitt's "Sitting in the Intersection," a fusion of poetry, audio, music, and storytelling that probes the feminine in us all. Jamila Reddy's solo show, "yes, and," explores the politics of pleasure as a way of healing and reclaiming colonized bodies and minds. And Kane Smego's biographical narrative verse in "Temples of Lung and Air" recounts his experiences using hip-hop as a means of community building in Zimbabwe, Abu Dhabi, Alaska, and here in the Triangle. —Byron Woods
