Jordi is a non-conforming, afrofuturistic, multidimensional artist weaving healing energy for the self and the community. Her practice is deeply rooted in a celestial connection to the other-wordly. Through performance encompassing vocal, theatre, storytelling, and dance, Jordi processes human and non-human emotions, growth, trauma, and the emergence of authentic selfhoods. Her healing practices are deeply involved with local activism of Los Angeles’s QTBIPOC (queer, trans, Black, Indiginous and persons of colour) communities. Her work has been presented in Canada, New York film festivals, and the Getty Museum on Tongva Land.
