Capsule: Political Bodies: An Introduction

By Miranda Chan / Political Bodies

Set in a nightclub, Political Bodies gathers what society has deemed as marginalized bodies, to dance, to take space and to empower these bodies and all those who come in contact with them. The setting gives tribute to how LGBQT communities were an essential part of club culture and the birth of dance music. Nightclubs in history represented safe spaces for LGBQT people to gather and defy the oppression of society. Raving has become a form of protest. This dance film brings us into this universe for a moment and allows us to travel through emotions of resistance, pride and empowerment that lives within the resilient lives of minorities in North America.
