T.W.I.S.T is a multidisciplinary feminist dance-theater project that blurs lines between research/community engagement and performance/activism as a radical practice of female collaboration. An acronym for These Women in Space and Time, T.W.I.S.T integrates elegant athleticism, film, visual art, audience-interaction, and wit to interrogate gender, space, time, and power in the public domain. T.W.I.S.T is originally commissioned by the South Miami Dade Cultural Arts Center and is uniquely designed as a site adaptable multifaceted project in four parts ideal for inventive presentation in intimate theaters, museums, and art galleries.

Estimated Artist Fee: $10,000-$15,000 plus housing and travel.
