“Color of Reality” by Jon Boogz & Lil Buck

Art by Alexa Meade

Transfixed by racial, political, and socioeconomic tensions saturating the news, movement artists Jon Boogz and Lil Buck, enveloped by the art of Alexa Meade, switch off the TV and release their emotion into a stirring dance that is both a lament and a spirited call to action.
Movement artists Jon Boogz and Lil Buck, who use dance to move people and improve the world, find alchemy with Meade’s perspective-changing art. The result is a powerful, mesmerizing reflection, a moving 2D art representation, of the state of today’s society.

-shout out to PoC who are dancers that have to wear awkward “nude” tights and are not picked in auditions due to bigotry

-shout out to exotic dancers who are treated like the scum of the earth because it’s a “sexual” type of dance

-shout out to chubby dancers who are not picked in auditions because of their weight

-shout out to dancers who don’t take ballet/pointe
