Espii is a dramaturg, performer, and sound & media designer based in Brooklyn, New York. She has a B.A. in Theatre Arts from Virginia Tech and is a M.F.A. candidate at Brooklyn College's Performance and Interactive Media Arts program. She works primarily in devised theatre and intermedia performance. She is interested in exploring "cyborg theatre" as a means of deconstructing race, gender, and identity. Espii's research methods of exploring cyborg bodies in performance are through physical computing, hardware electronic hacking, gestural sound, and spatialization. Espii's work also explores themes of womanism, social justice, rhythm and movement, and cultural aspects of the African diaspora.
