I am an activist/dancer/musician/DJ/artist/healer based in Glasgow; The different elements of my work intersect around creating more access to embodied living. I organise to make inclusive club spaces and alternative social dancing spaces, DJ skill sharing with self identifying women, LGBTQI and POC communities to create access to, and ownership of; space, equipment, parties and skills. I converse and choreograph to share navigations through intersectional struggles of womens* health &/or care as the collaborative entity Letitia Beatriz, I teach and facilitate free dance and movement workshops with Glasgow Open Dance School (G.O.D.S) focusing on creating supportive spaces to explore what it can be to have a body and how we might communally learn from each others different experiences of our bodies. G.O.D.S believes that everyone is a dancer and everyone is a teacher and given the right support we can all explore and excel in sharing those parts of ourselves. I organise, educate and learn with Herbal Unity, a herbal medicine clinic and gardening collective for migrants and people within the asylum system, running monthly study groups that are open to all. We use plants that we can access freely in our environment to heal our bodies as an empowering political action. I also make music as a percussionist and vocalist in various formations as Asparagus Piss Raindrop, Thoth, Fem Bitch Nation and other less formalised configurations within my communities. I DJ as Letitia Pleiades.
