Transformation

“Transformation: 3 Vignettes for Healing with Dance ” (work-in-progress) celebrates the spirit of women who resist oppression through gender and cultural healing. This work offers a safe space for embodied self-representation, and a deep sense of community, turning inward to reclaim the power of the sacred feminine.

 

Through video and photography, I am capturing expressive and experimental performance dance pieces that offer a defiant narrative on what it means to be female. Using my own body, I reflect on sexual politics on how our gender identity encounters trauma, violence, repression, and finally, liberation when we grab back the power that society and culture have denied us.
