Dominica Greene (she.her) is a Black woman who cherishes and channels her Caribbean heritage and Queerness into an art-based existence. Based on the unceded lands of the Munsee Lenape people, now known as Brooklyn, Greene creates conceptual, body-based art rooted in her belief that dance is not something to be learned, but an innate entity that we all have access to and are perpetually engaging with. Weaving her core research practices of duration, somatics, raving, and ancestral channeling, her work aims to reflect nature, human and otherwise, as a way of highlighting humanity and the stark sameness and differences and sameness in the differences within all of us. @draminica
