W.I.M.Y.M is a piece about gender, athletics, communication, resistance and rhythm. built to from an investigation that explores the idea of "gestures of power". Observing athletics and representations of gender made within sport. The piece was originally built running a series of workshops with ten women, exploring together how they could collectively incorporate gestures or "power" via and through their movements. Exploring notions of "masculinity" with the Body. Within this investigation, we devised a piece that explores, dissects and embodies these ideas. The piece borrows and explores the call and response structure that is used and was born out of hip hop, jazz and break dance culture, using the form of circle as a space to act and communicate, to show and to share, and to be seen and to be celebrated.
