About the Book: Published January 2022 by University of Washington Press and drawing from more than fifteen years of collaborative dance-making and sustained dialogues based on deep alliances across communities of color, “Dancing Transnational Feminisms“ offers a multigenre exploration of how dance can be intersectionally reimagined as practice, methodology, and metaphor for feminist solidarity. Blending essays with stories, interviews, and poems, this collection explores timely questions surrounding race and performance, gender and sexuality, art and politics, global and local inequities, and the responsibilities of artists toward their communities.
