a  twerk  symphony

bump. by dkfash

You will see buttocks and rhythm

“a booty symphony”

a celebration of movement within the hips, around the waist, and through the pelvic floor

performance art thrusts us into spaces where women are scuttling monsters, gliding damsels, armoured heroes and growling villains of their own making!

just like the respectability politics & shame fuelled battle within twerk space, the form of VW will unleash this struggle as a machine that purges the different emotions, feelings and experiences fearlessly.

the gilded cage of the female form is Moulded. Stretched. And smashed to pieces throughout by the "booty clan"
