Body Dread is an abstract rendering of relationships between trauma, femininity, exhaustion, and rage made up of multi-layered experiences of material, language, and rigorous physical repetition. The solo attempts to demonstrate a psycho-physical-emotional exhaustion that asks, "how do we keep going even when it's hard?"

Body Dread was performed as part of "IT'S ME, ISN'T IT?" a self-produced show with Marin Day and Maddie Hopfield at Lifeworld in Gowanus, BK.
