Sappho and Sweat
A luxurious and sweaty strange dance class to perform alone in your room. A thunderfuck of somatics, athletics and the burning words of Sappho's poetry.
"...that loosener of limbs, bittersweet creature against which nothing can be done.” — Sappho
Thank you to: all of the incredible musical artists on my Sappho Playlists, your music makes it all possible. To all the beautiful bodies I've danced with in group Sappho class. And all the freaky dance teachers who comprise my lineage.
