FREIGHT (2018 - )

“Freight” is a 60 mins. choreography for 5 dancers that explores the idea of immigration and womanhood through the individual experiences of immigrant dancers. The thematic starting point: Five women are ready to leave and waiting for a train at the Union train station, but the train never comes. This train station has been closed for a long time, and is no longer functioning, but they don’t know that. Sourcing from personal experience, this work is about the in-between life of an immigrant, and challenges immigrant women and artists face and experience. Through movement and physicality, I am interested in exploring a different, often conflicting emotions and thoughts, translating them into a unique dance work.
