[1] Being given the platform to celebrate International Womxn’s Day with curating a one-time only performed dance piece in the beautiful Museum of Anthropology, was such an honour and an amazing experience. We brought together 4 difference dance artists traversing the styles of hip hop, contemporary, waacking, afro-house, dancehall, house, breaking, and freestyle. Kosi Eze from Toronto/Nigeria, Leah McFly from Montreal, Momo from Japan/Vancouver, and Marisa Gold, based in Vancouver/Burnaby.

In 4 rehearsals, the dancers brought together music, poetry, and movements that spoke to their connection to Womxnhood and what it means to them: motherhood, divine femininity, balance of masculinity, strength, power, grace, softness, loud and unapologetic. It was a special moment to witness being performed “in the round” - a 360 degree style of performance with the audience surrounding all sides.

The evening was curated with other powerful performances by jazz trio Fines Triddum, a hip hop set by Missy D, Kimmortal and JB The First Lady, a rock-soul live music set by Old Soul Rebel, and a DJ set by DJ Denise. A line up that was 98% Womxn of Colour, Queerness and Ferocity.
