Performance video in collaboration with Moses Ward
This performance is a response to our sudden separation, our reality of social distancing, the problematisation of touch because of the pandemic. With our visibility as BIPOC & performing artists whose practices rely on the live moment/encounter at risk, in this work we look at creating layers of contact & togetherness while apart.
