Both works... addressed mysogny, violence, oppression, shaming, body policing, internalized negativity and the like, but also contained sections where Black women celebrated the power and wonder of their bodies and supported one another in doing so.
Our bodies belong to us, and we are meant to take joy in them outside of society's strictures. Sydnie's work is dense with imagery and references. She and her terrific dancers make it all work.
This is really revolutionary stuff, fundamentally revolutionary stuff, and its message is valuable for all women.
