What I’ve grown to love about vogue femme is how it is unashamedly bold, fierce, sensual, unapologetic. It allows me to access my femininity in a way that feels less cumbersome. It’s a femininity for me and not for the gaze of others. It’s a femininity that allows a cultural expression, allows me to be seen, allows me to take up space. A boldness that I usually wouldn’t let myself inhabit. I wanted to harness the power of this movement to create a language in my show that is unapologetic, slow and considered, poised, cutting through the space and time, taking up as much of it as possible.
I worked with Kristopher to refine movement to explore my feminine energy, to put movement together in a way that could tell my story. Something that spoke of history, of trauma, of transformation.
A slow guitar riff begins… She moves through the space, her hands feel, brush over thick cables that cling to the contours of her body, she raises her hands as if she is trying to draw strength from another power beyond herself. She draws the energy back into her body…she is transformed.
