Nickeshia Garrick

Kaeja Projects: Moving Connections (2020)

Nickeshia Garrick is a settler on the stolen land of Tkaronto and has performed on this land for over 25 years. She is unapologetically a Black, Queer Artist, who believes in the healing power of breath through raw emotion and movement. Nickeshia is a Dora Mavor Moore-winning and multi-nominated artist who uses her knowledge of the arts and the body to teach movement at The Toronto Film School and to offer discounted/free personal training sessions to the Black and Indigenous communities. She holds her BFA in Dance from Simon Fraser University (Vancouver) and is currently working on the second iteration of her solo exploration, ‘To My Past, Present, and Future...’ This continued exploration of what it is to be Black, Queer, Broken, and Spiritual will be adapted to and captured on film.
