KANYI C (they/he)

Born in the city and raised in suburbia, Kanyi C is a Pennsylvania-based composer, lyricist, performer, and artist. After training as a musician, actor, singer, and dancer, Kanyi shifted their focus to writing for the stage. Their work seeks to blend the ethereal with the earthbound. 

Kanyi's first musical, ENDSVILLE, had its virtual premiere in November 2020. The production served as a fundraiser for Black Theatre United and Broadway For Racial Justice.

While in quarantine, Kanyi has continued to work on two other full-length musicals - stay tuned to find out more.
