Landing Strip, choreographed in the Fall of 2016, was inspired by the book of poems Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur. This work comments on how women are portrayed in today’s society by juxtaposing sexualized movement with the romantic song “You Really Got a Hold on Me” covered by the band She and Him. By choosing to put blunt sexual gestures over the harmonic lyrics of this song, I hope to show the audience how women’s sexuality can be used to show our strength and pride as women rather than allow it to be the tool that society uses to limit us.
Estimated Run Time: 9 min
