I Needed to Listen, (2020)

“I Needed to Listen” utilizes research conducted in the history of trauma stored in the body. Through the intersection of film and dance, it offers a movement conversation in different experiences of racial trauma and how those might be perceived. This investigation worked with the implicit reactions of its collaborators to define the movement, camera perception, and editorial choices in its completed iteration.
