Runtime:77 min.


There's one now! A body, in motion. Through contemporary dance and other forms of movement, these non-traditional works draw inspiration from visual arts, anxiety, nature, pregnancy, queerness, Blackness, assimilation, and memory. The body is non-verbal and shown as a tool, as something alien, something divine, as a means of love and a house of strength and power.
