Smashworks Dance presents a work-in-progress excerpt from FEMPIRE — a utopian world run by unharnessed and uninhibited women. An evening length performance of episodic dances, FEMPIRE introduces various women characters of strength and uncensored expressions of truth, playfully pushing against gender normative stereotypes through feminist camp. Featuring choreography by Ashley McQueen in collaboration with Smashworks Dance, and introducing newest performer Hope Salas in collaboration with Justin Cimino, FEMPIRE fuses dance performance with prop-driven physical theatre to present a culmination of our current feminist fight — loud, uncensored, and unafraid.
