Séancers, which Ebony Noelle Golden calls "a form of creative activism" also "allows other kinds of rituals to unfold, through movement, song, spoken word and a sound score by Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste. Slipping into and peeling off disguises and second skins, Mr. Kosoko undergoes many transformations, at times stepping into the shoes, literally, that his family members might have worn."

Kosoko shared an excerpt from the performance at the College in May 2017.
