“It's personal, it's private, it's mine. You can look, but only

America is in crisis. Our centuries long march toward the realization of the promise of freedom and equality outlined at the birth of the republic is now faced with an extant threat that wishes to undermine our progress.

SLVT CULT is a collective of women who refuse to be silenced, and give voice to those unable to truly express themselves. Women who celebrate the female body and identity in all forms. This piece is a study on strength, perseverance, and beauty in the face of intimidation, disrespect, and the dehumanization of women. It's a celebration of the female form as experienced by one individual female in her own brilliant body. This piece is a combination of choreography, improvisation, and incredible inspiration drawn from the incomparable music of Antonia.
