Blackness. Tough, Resilient, Strong, Faithful, Hardworking, Persevering, Hyper-masculine. 


These words are common associations of blackness in modern times. Images of macho black masculinity dominate the airwaves of contemporary American media while leaving femininity nowhere to be found. The relationship between blackness and femininity is seldom explored.

 

As a result, Chine and I decided to create this choreography. 

We found that femininity is never included in blackness - as if the two cannot coexist, nor can they be intertwined. Through this choreography, we wanted to show that blackness is not limited to one representation, and feminity can be embraced and expressed by all those who identify as black.
