To be mixed. To be female, except… To be a POC except... To be from here but not really, to be a dancer and also other, to be in agreement except not, to be in the light except private, to perform these selves, to make a ritual- and to undo the ritual, to use what is passed down and also create something new, as a collective and separate. To put forward what we don't want others to put forward for us.
