Sensitive Pressures, a "high" fashion runway show, is research into the presentation of the contemporary, female experience and how our body/bodies have been affected every day by a history of male possession and power. The work explores what it takes to identify where in the body we hold our environmental pressures/aggressors and how we might use this awareness to shift the physical, emotional, and spiritual states of the body towards greater self-empowerment and presence. Sensitive Pressures is supported by CA$H, a grants program of Theatre Bay Area, in Partnership with Dancers' Group..
