Ma(s)king Her (2016) is a dance theater work addressing the absence of women of color in speculative fiction as empowered future beings and journeywomen. Aligned with AfroSurrealism and Black feminist thought, this modern folktale emphasizing the urgency of creating alternative worlds and economies of value and need, particularly for women of color in a world that often subjugates their collective presence to silence and/or invisibility. The artist book documents the work. It includes the script with illustrations, contributed essays, artist reflections, and a workshop curriculum derived from the creative process.
