Why did I make Gold Dance Film?
For the last three years a lot of my work has been rooted in me processing my identity, my voice, and my dance as a Black Woman in America. This pathway has almost always left me, with little to no room, to explore the depths of my imagination without considering the reality of the racism and oppression occurring in America . After the publicized death of Breonna Taylor and a host of other things that seemed to target Black women, I wanted to create a narrative where we could be victorious. I wanted to create a fantasy land and I wanted the weapons, the dance, the messagings to be accessible to Black girls. I need a Black woman superhero to mirror who I am in every day life.
My imagination and creativity are the very things that are saving me right now. Between the global pandemic, racism, and loss of work, I need to see empowering content that not only speaks our imaginations but inspires us to move and to dance-- content that inspires us to move towards action. I want to tell stories that are imaginative, playful, but exposing the problems we need to fix as a society.
We need your HELP to make our dream a reality. We are fundraising to turn this dance film into a television series. We have a fundraising goal of $50,000 .
