Event Details

THE WINDOW SEX PROJECT calls young women and gender queer folks living in Harlem to ACTION!

Celebrate your body.
Use your voice and movement to respond to street harassment.
Fellowship with others living in your community.

Harlem women and genderqueer folks ages 18-40 are invited to participate in a FREE workshop rooted in movement, discussion and healthy living. We’ll spend the day investigating the way in which our bodies are perceived in Harlem.

Space is limited. Be sure to RSVP.

PLEASE BE AWARE that these community workshops are intended to be a liberated and supportive space for women and genderqueer folks. The Window Sex Project creates space to center ourselves, particularly our bodies and our stories. It is an opportunity to affirm one another while sharing tools and resources.
SLMDances' performances of The Window Sex Project are the spaces intended for dialogue across genders. We ask audiences to witness the performance work and then engage in discussion informed by the stories shared. If you are interested in bringing us to your community to perform the work, please contact Sydnie at sydnie@slmdances.com.
If you are a man who cares about gender equity, HERE ARE SOME RESOURCES to help stop street harassment.

About The Window Sex Project
The Window Sex Project (TWSP) is ongoing community engaged work that SLMDances began in commitment to providing liberated spaces for young adult women folks to voice their concerns, find agency and community support and take action in response to the violence against their bodies in public space. Since 2011, we have facilitated workshops in partnership with Hollaback!, Stop Street Harassment, Girls for Gender Equity, and Barnard Center for Research on Women, and have conducted workshops at Harlem School of the Arts, Grosvenor YMCA, Barnard College, Brooklyn YWCA, Black Girl Project Sisterhood Summit, Center for Anti Violence Education and more. Learn more at http://www.sydnielmosley.com/the-window-sex-project.

The Window Sex Project Community Workshops 2017 are presented in community partnership with I, Too Arts Collective, Five Boro Story Project, Harlem Yoga, and Sixth Street Wellness. The Community Workshops are made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. They are also presented in marketing partnership with Stop Street Harassment, Hollaback!, The Laundromat Project, Barnard Center for Research on Women, MBDance651 ARTS, Spaceworks, and The Schomburg Center

Organizer

Sydnie L. Mosley Dances

Sydnie L. Mosley Dances (SLMDances) is an all-women, New York City-based contemporary dance company that works in communities to organize for gender and racial justice through experiential dance performance. SLMDances' works engage audiences in the artistic process; our dances provoke a visceral reaction to the physicality on stage, and incite conversation toward community action. The works reflect real life experiences central to our identities, and pulls focus to the stories of women and black people. The movement vocabulary moves fluidly between modern dance techniques and movement of the African Diaspora, while dancers frequently use their voice with spoken text and audible breath. Through dimensional compositions, specific, textured movement, humor and character development, choreographed works appeal to a sense of humanity.

 

Sydnie L. Mosley Dances has presented work at Dixon Place, Gibney Dance, The Chen Dance Center newsteps program, the FIGMENT Festival on Governor’s Island, RoofTopDance, 92Y, 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 Center, the Harlem Arts Alliance Artz, Rootz & Rhythm Festival, Movement Research at Judson Church, BAX|Brooklyn Arts Exchange, The Riverside Church, The Red Carpet Theater at Taino Towers, Harlem Stage’s The Takeover, Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance (BAAD!), Triskelion Arts, The New School for Hollaback!’s HOLLA:Revolution, Barnard College, Cornell University, The Pennsylvania State University, and Duke University, in addition to the NYC anti-street harassment rally, annually, and many outdoor performances including the Suite Summer Festival at Socrates Sculpture Garden in Queens and Multicultural Arts Festival in Harlem.

The company situates itself amongst the Harlem arts community by creating and presenting dance uptown; partnering with other Harlem artists and businesses; and focusing community-based work within Harlem.
