Joy (is Dance)

This is a sound and image piece that meditates on the anti-gravitational capacities of dance as ‘Refusal.’ It considers movement a language and practice that is metamorphic. Made with footage from the Berlin BLM demo 2021 and a soundscape created from demo speeches and sounds from across the African diaspora. It continues my visual and sonic work which attends to Arthur Jafa’s ‘Black Visual Intonation’ as a arrhythmic sonic and visual expression of Black life.

Currently being screened as part of the W Xool Festival
