#WomenAre

Social media is often a place for comparison, objectification, subjectivity, and unrealistic expectations for what it means to be a woman. This dance seeks to redefine the possibilities for connecting with online communities and creating art in the digital world. #WomenAre has been sourced from over 400+ responses via Instagram by A/B testing for themes to inspire phrases and gestures cultivating in a duet focused on women power and strength. Additionally, this collaboration of music and movement was inspired by the voices of prominent women in our generation including Michelle Obama, Malala Yousafzai, among others.
