As a Black Queer Woman, much of Kai Davis' work is tied up in her identity. In 2011 Kai began performing poetry and teaching writing workshops, which explored themes of race, gender, and sexuality. For the past four years she has expanded to utilize a combination of poetry, music, visual art, and dance to explore these themes in theatrical productions. Kai performs, co-writes, produces, casts, and directs these showcases, in which marginalized artists come together to communicate through collaboration. Most recently, Kai directed a show in which she and six other artists used photography projections, poetry, dance, and comedy to discuss memory, history, and time. She is currently a Co-host and Artistic Director for The Philly Pigeon Poetry Slam and a Poetry Editor for Apiary Magazine.
