I like to work with subversion. I try to not take myself too seriously. I feel secure in myself as a feminist, so I like to fuck with ideas of what that label means, what it means to be a woman on stage and what it means to be a female choreographer. My work often explores and asks questions about objectification and reverence and how these ideas are often two sides of the same coin. I feel the objectification of any performer on stage is almost impossible to avoid. In 2012 I addressed these themes in a dance creation called Soft Animal.

In 1980. a well-meaning fundraiser came to see me and said, “Miss Graham, the most powerful thing you have going for you to raise money is your respectability.” I wanted to spit. Respectable! Show me any artist who wants to be respectable.
