“Thursday Night” navigates the often frustrating and inevitable experience of street harassment and catcalling for women. It is not only a protest piece that calls for respect and shares with the audience the frustration of daily street harassment, but presents itself as a big ‘fuck you’ to all of the men who have made us feel uncomfortable, scared, and small. LOUD BODIES sets out to use this dance as a platform for the often unheard women, all while creating an inclusive space that allows for vulnerability and an attention to action. An original soundtrack was developed for “Thursday night” by Sinkslow a.k.a. Drew Jensen.
