Ep.05: The Female Prison Experience, Award-Winning Alvin Ailey Dancer Jeroboam Bozeman, Trauma & Creativity
We explore the female prison experience, hearing the unique perspective of a mother on the inside and a transgender black woman and former prisoner who is now leading an organization to negotiate the safety and future of transgender inmates.
We also hear from Synergy Theatre Project - a UK organization that uses the the arts to transform the lives of inmates.
Stance meets Lydia Higginson - a girl who made her own clothes over the course of one year after being sexually assaulted at gunpoint, channeling her horrific experience into something that was honest and healing.
And we profile the award-winning choreographer and lead dancer of the Alvin Ailey Dance Theater Co, Jeroboam Bozeman.
