Directed and Choreographed by Shauna Davis

Using movement as a force, BLACK.ECO is a dance film that dives into the many worlds that exist within
a Black woman. We open on a self-assured and poetic guide, whose sculptural hair is adorned in
constellations. With her invitation, we dive into four ecosystems that reside within her, each with distinct
movement, casting, color and sound worlds exploring four forms of Black joy. We return to our guide one
final time to find her transformed. Touching on the divinity of the body, sisterhood, and being,
BLACK.ECO invites us to experience Black fantasy as a shiny vehicle for transcendence.

Shauna Davis is an LA-based dancer and choreographer who has worked with Ryan Murphy, Dallas Black Dance Theatre, LA Chamber
Orchestra, and Kanye West.
