choreographies of resist///dance is a new film work made for Tramway TV that meditates on rituals for resistance for women of colour during troubled times. 

It incorporates healing and uplifting practices and presents them as poetic strategies for self defence: Dance, breath-work, music, song, and dialogue with other women of colour and moments with nature all become radical acts of self-care and self-love.

Mundair uses the traditionally Punjabi female folk dance of Giddha and female group singing of Boliyaan as a rallying call for resistance. For a call to literal, spiritual, emotional and psychological movement – a physicality that embodies resist///dance.

This film work is presented as a triptych of three films
Duration of each film is between 3  -10 minutes long
Audio consists of experimental electronic music using voice and instrumentation and composed by the artist
