I was drawn to the lived reality of existing inside pervasive propaganda and the acts of subversive protest. It was especially important to me to highlight the stories of protest during this time of global upheaval. The title, нет войне means “no to war” in Russian. This work is an anti-war statement in support of Ukraine, and it’s also a work to help us reflect on our own culture, media consumption, and right to protest. Laura Neese / Dance Projects In eukrasia (working title) Neese draws from her studies of the body in movement and on the dissection table to engage body as subject and matter, exploring its inner workings, function, expression, and the water and fibrous animal stuff that make us all.
