4 creative movements :

The Obsidian Circus World is nurtured by Sidian, a multi-energetic creator and artist. Sidian creates in, and maintains, 4 key artistic movements: Conscious, Water, Form and Sidian’s Black Book. These 4 movements, all represented by unique characters, are lenses through which Sidian understands and translates identity and its intersections. Conscious taps into conversations and connections made in the dreaming and Water is an exploration of spirituality through water and its bodies. Form examines the body as a vessel of sex, sense, and ways of knowing, and Sidian’s Black Book is a library of written works

The final character in the Obsidian Circus World is a doorway to Friends of Sidian: a world expansion that platforms and amplifies the voices of Queer African Creatives. It creates a gallery of creativity and expression where the work of these Creatives live
