Performed by the all-female intergenerational Ladies of Hip-Hop Dance Collective (LOHHDC), the Black Dancing Bodies Project is an ongoing journey through layers of identity and existence for Black women in street dance and the world at large. Exploring the elegance and power of women in hip hop, LOHHDC builds on the shapeshifting paths laid out by generations of Black women artists and activists on and off the stage. Commissioned by Works & Process, this project received a 2021 bubble residency and 2022 LaunchPAD residency and premiered at the Guggenheim this past March.
