Project Overview

Headless Women

naked / spoken word / live art / dance / dance writing / queer / current project

if you cut out your eyes with scissors
do you think you would still dream?
…the politics of being seen
naked
i am lying in wait
i am laying out the bait
…Salome would just chop of Herod’s dick to add to her holy head collection
