In this work, set in the 1930’s in the wake of an era of deep-seated segregation and economic depression in the US, Dr. Gaynell Sherrod’s TWINE! explores the ways in which poor people created group identity, a sense of belonging, cultural validation and autonomy through the transformative action of embodied practices. TWINE! seeks to dismantle more oppressive hierarchical social relationships in form, and instead celebrates and values the human experience through shared cultural spaces and the recognition of the power of the collective “I.” “What’s in your hand? … You’ve got in your hand the power …” Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. (1967)
