Complex Movements

Performing Arts, 2013

Invincible’s spitfire wordplay has received acclaim from fans all across the world, while their active involvement in progressive social change has taken their music beyond entertainment toward actualizing the change they wish to see. As a co-founder of EMERGENCE Media, they released their debut album ShapeShifters (2008) and produced award winning videos like The Revival (2009, about women in hip-hop) and Locusts (2008), exploring displacement and gentrification in Detroit). They have performed on stages and in clubs, community centers and festivals around the world for over a decade, both as a solo artist and featured as part of the anti-misogyny hip-hop collective ANOMOLIES. They teamed up with longtime producer Waajeed in 2010 to release a limited edition 7” single Detroit Summer/ Emergence. Invincible is a fellow of Kresge Arts in Detroit and the Ellen Stone Belic Institute for Women and Gender in the Arts and Media. In addition to their work as a performing artist, for the last decade Invincible has worked with Detroit Summer, a multi-racial, inter-generational collective in Detroit that is transforming communities through youth facilitative leadership, creativity and collective action. They were also the co-coordinator and co-founder of the Detroit Future Youth network to support social justice and media-based youth projects throughout the city.
