White Ladies are Hungry: A Failed Dance

In this work-in-progress, Pappas and her collaborators attempt to understand the ways they've been taught to be white. Diving into modern dance training, as well as conversations around wellness, femininity, domesticity, and land, we try to reveal the scripts around race that our bodies have inherited. What has our whiteness been used to justify and how can this process be exposed, interrupted, and unlearned? Collaborators: Ellen Smith Ahern, Fern Katz, and Taylor Zappone. Music: Julia Wolfe Film Stills: Tori Lawrence. Video: Rebecca Pappas
