The Bessie Award–winning artist reflects on gender, identity, and history in this performance that blends original dance, song, film, and text. Framed by the 1929 Women’s War and the 2014 Boko Haram kidnappings, it contends with the loss and invisibility of women’s stories, and the social consequences of silencing those narratives.
