Creative Performances Protests the Reversal of Roe and Emphasizes The Importance of Women’s Bodily Autonomy With ‘Our Bodies! A Protest In Dance!’

March 25 00:01 2023

In a bold and impassioned move, Creative Performances commissioned 10 visionary choreographers to use their artistry and movement to take a stand on one of the most pressing social issues of our time: Women’s Bodily Autonomy. The result is a collection of stunning dance works that eloquently and powerfully advocate for Reproductive Justice and access to Safe and Legal Abortion.

In the wake of the Supreme Court’s reversal of Roe, producer Sangeeta Yesley, has challenged the emerging and established choreographers to use the powerful medium of dance to capture the profound impact and convey the weight and complexity of this decision. These choreographers have woven together a tapestry of movement and meaning that will leave audiences moved and inspired, and reminds us of the transformative power of art to ignite change!
