A movement practitioner, performer, researcher, abolitionist feminist, and witch, Madi understands dance to be a powerful tool for imagining and gesturing toward liberatory futures based in mutual care, pleasure, and curiosity. Their practice is grounded in investigating the queer world-making capacities of dance through performance, collective movement, and theory.
