Body Politic – THEM

Fuelled by fury, THEM explores three women’s struggle to navigate loss of self, trauma and the impact societal-defined generalisations have on our mental wellbeing.

The piece flicks through the pages of three survivors of sexual violence, shifting through time and space as the women find healing from the pages of their journal and resolve from the voices of others.

After a publicly acclaimed 2019 tour of Father Figurine, Body Politic are back with a powerful and gripping display of hip hop dance. Directed by Emma-Jane Greig and choreographed by L’atisse Rhoden, THEM delves deeper into an emotional portrayal of dehumanisation, inequality and misogyny.

Commissioned by: Swindon Dance and Dancin’ Oxford, and supported by  Arts Council England.
