SaMel Tanz

 

Bgirls, Body Image and Being "Bossed Up"

that “F” word by SaMel Tanz By Aparita Bhandari

After SaMel Tanz won the a spot in last year’s Toronto Fringe Festival, which is programmed by a lottery system versus a juried selection, they started talking through ideas with other women dancers they have collaborated with in the past, Hart told me in a phone conversation several weeks before the show. Feminism – or the way many of the dancers were navigating their lives as women, dancers or not – was something they kept coming back to. The result was a show that featured moments in these young women’s lives told through movements from an assortment of dance forms – contemporary, hip hop, even a bit of Argentine tango.
