Dancer As Insurgent

Dancer As Insurgent | Elements of Vogue | CA2M, 2017

[Hart’s] poses transcribe in the flesh a history of cultural struggle that goes all the way back to the 1920s and the first massive drag balls held during the Harlem Renaissance…Hart’s performance Dancer As Insurgent takes the form of a ritual invocation, channeling through verbal and bodily language a long history of resilience and survival, in which the body is revealed as a site of empowerment and collective action.
