Majesty Royale

 

Majesty Royale is a dancer, performance maker, sound explorer, and ghost occupying liminal spaces. Majesty grew up in the unseeded land of the Eno and Occaneechi peoples (Durham, NC) and is currently based in Lenni-Lenape land (Philadelphia, PA). Majesty is a graduate of the University of the Arts (BFA Dance) and a 2020 Pina Bausch Choreography fellow.

Their work confronts claims of ownership on the body by engaging in radical defiance of how one should be. Majesty uses flamboyance, language reconstruction, community building, coded language, mis-representation, voice, glitter, and sweat. Through these practices, Majesty intends to loose the self of the constraints of a singular reality in search of new realnesses.
