Intisar Abioto is a writer, dancer, photographer, and explorer. She is always working with dance, word, self-mythos, and magic to merge internal and external Intisars from past, present, future, and fantasy occasions of time. Intisar studied English and Dance at Wesleyan University in CT, where she danced/studied about the human genome with The Liz Lerman Dance Exchange, and wrote about the movement poetics in Chaucer. She is the founder of The People Could Fly Project (where she turned children’s book, The People Could Fly, into an international 200,000-mile flying dance-media-performance expedition), The Black Portlanders, and The Black.
