In This Body: Say Yes / Seventh Wave
AUG 15, 2017
A performative evening, embracing the human body: hosted by the Say Yes Electric Collective and inspired by The Seventh Wave's current Dangerous Bodies issue.
@ Dixon Place, Brooklyn
"Safety and security are not afforded to every body. Many communities live under a certain pressure and terror exerted by their surroundings. We want to confront those pressures, and allow personal struggles to surface and strengthen our bonds with our own bodies and those around us. We are focused on creating a safe environment, where performing artists and audience alike can share insecurities about the micro-aggressions they face on a daily basis because of the bodies they exist in."
