LITANY is a five-part dance film manifested and performed by 2020 Rebuild Foundation Chicago Dancemakers Forum resident artist Po’Chop aka Jenn Freeman. Created in collaboration with Jordan Phelps of VAM Studio, LITANY uses brown paper and imagination to create new worlds full of rumbling anger and playful humor. LITANY is a voyage through a wooden dollhouse. A prayer whispered in grass-lined lots. A leap into the historical pages of Ebony Magazine. A collage. LITANY is an exorcism expelling antiquated notions of Blackness, queer identity, spirituality, grace, rage, and healing.

LITANY was released a chapter a month starting in August 2020 and will premiere as a full length film in the fall of 2021.
