Embodiment Project is an award-winning San Francisco based company that intersects street dance traditions like house dance, bgirling, hip hop, and more with visceral poetic and theatrical elements, and live music. Artistic director Nicole Klaymoon’s signature approach to dance emphasizes the sacred practice of voicing stories of trauma to reclaim power. “X RATED PLANET” seeks healing from sexual trauma, including the reclamation of sovereignty over one’s body, while using documentary hip hop dance theater and storytelling to challenge pervasive rape culture and contribute to the discourse of the Me Too Movement. “The performers are charismatic, the hip-hop dance commanding, the truths delivered unflinching… Go see it.” - Ford Review 

Estimated artist fee: $6,000/performance; $10,000-15,000/week
