First presented at Dance Mission Brigade Harvest: Fall Choreographers Showcase in San Francisco. 

An excerpt of a larger work where I explore the emotions surrounding the history and science of color. This piece explores red and its dichotomy that symbolizes power for men and sensuality for women. When women embrace sensuality and sexuality, derogative epithets follow. When men embrace their power, they are celebrated.
