The (her)stor(ies) Project


mourn and never tire


WIGS: a book of dance poems

"The erotic is a resource within each of us that lies in a deeply female and spiritual plane, firmly rooted in the power of our unexpressed or unrecognized feeling...

The fear of our desires keeps them suspect and indiscriminately powerful, for to suppress any truth is to give it strength beyond endurance. The fear that we cannot grow beyond whatever distortions we may find within ourselves keeps us docile and loyal and obedient, externally defined, and leads us to accept many facets of our oppression as women."

-from Audre Lorde's Uses of the Erotic: The Erotic as Power

(her)stor(ies) was made possible through the Carr Center's Artist Hub residency program.
