Dancer As Insurgent

Elements of Vogue / CA2M / Madrid, 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…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.”

 

– Manuel Segade, director of CA2M
