The piece focuses on marginalized experiences in society through the lens of the 1960s counter culture movement. With the three dancers, the piece explores what it is to be a woman, to be of colour and to be homosexual. The movement explores themes of being held back by what society labels people as and the limitations that are put on us, as well as those that we put on ourselves. The piece explores the battles that have been fought by these groups and the struggles and triumphs that have come from it. Ultimately, it is a message of acceptance and a piece for anyone who has ever felt as though they couldn't do, say or be something because of what people thought they were, based on their gender, race, sexuality etc. It focuses on a progressive future, in which people are people and we are not defined by a set of stereotypes.
