turbulence part 1
¨Sarah Brahim’s turbulence part 1 mixed a half-dozen live dancers against a projected backdrop of a film by Vi Son Trinh showing a woman in a hijab dancing in front of an apartment building. The onstage dancers echoed some of her movements while uttering such condescending phrases as “your English is so good” and “you’re so articulate.” The dancers frequently bent, fell,  rested, and rose again, trying to make their way forward while buffeted by an invisible windstorm—a physical manifestation of the fatiguing necessity imposed on women of color to constantly explain themselves in a white-dominant society.¨ - Brett Campbell, Oregon ArtsWatch
