Jaamil Olawale Kosoko


My name is Jaamil Olawale Kosoko (Ja-mill  O-la-wa-lay  Ko-sa-ko). I'm a Philadelphia transplant, Motor City native. My work has received grant support from The Pew Center for Arts and Heritage through Dance Advance, The Joyce Theater Foundation, and The Philadelphia Cultural Fund. I like to write poetry and sometimes perform funky pop songs under my alias Big Baby Bird J-Luv. I enjoy performing and touring throughout the country with friends like Keely Garfield, Miguel Gutierrez, Headlong Dance Theater, Pig Iron Theatre Company, and other hip post-modernists. Check me out online at www.kosokoperformance.org to learn more.

Jaamil performs in I SAY THE WORD.
