We’ve Got It Coming
Where do you stand? What do you stand for? Where do you draw the line? When do you speak up? Möbius Dance asked themselves questions of how to live, respond to, or survive in a political and social landscape that is marked by on-going gender and racial inequalities and neoliberalism. Some might say we live in a traumatizing society. Is this a time of great urgency or opportunity?
