The Window Sex Project is a dance-theater work that addresses the every day practice, in which women are “window shopped,” that is forced to bear unsolicited harassment from men while walking on the street.

The work places five women of varying races and body types on pedestals in an art gallery setting, forcing audiences to contend with the objectification of the female body in a contemporary society. The project aims to equally celebrate all the bodies illustrating how each woman's sexuality is unique to her rather than outside perceptions.

The Window Sex Project is a Harlem community arts and performance initiative created in part through workshops over the course of summer 2011 with women ages 18-35. The workshops provided a safe and supportive space for women to voice their concerns and share their experiences about street harassment, learn ways to respond and manage harassment on a day-to-day basis, and feel empowered through shared experience. The final dance work voices their concerns and restores agency by celebrating their bodies in a public artwork by the community for the community.

Sydnie L. Mosley Dances

Sydnie L. Mosley Dances (SLMDances) is a New York City-based contemporary dance company presenting works that involve audiences in the artistic process, provoke a visceral reaction to the physicality on stage, and incite conversation. Choreographer Sydnie L. Mosley's emerging artistic voice reflects real life experiences with a particular interest in black cultures and women. The movement vocabulary spans modern, ballet, and African dance, while dancers frequently use their voice with spoken text and audible breath. Through dimensional compositions, specific, textured movement, and character development, choreographed works appeal to a sense of humanity.  

Sydnie L. Mosley Dances has presented work at The Chen Dance Center newsteps program for emerging artists; the FIGMENT Festival on Governor’s Island; RoofTopDance, a new stage for emerging artists in Bushwick, Brooklyn; the Artists’ Salon at the Roger Smith Hotel; as a part of the New York Foundation for the Arts Boot Camp Arts Festival at Surreal Estate and Joyce SoHo; The Actor's Fund Arts Theater; the Harlem Arts Alliance Artz, Rootz & Rhythm Festival, Movement Research at Judson Church, Brooklyn Arts Exchange (BAX), The Red Carpet Theater at Taino Towers, Barnard College, The Pennsylvania State University, and Cornell University.
