Fort/tress is a solo choreographed and performed by Sarah Joy Stoker.

It looks at and to the female, the monarch, the global history of abuse, repression and suppression, amplified in the age of trump; racism, misogyny, displacement, poverty and the unwavering fight that persists. We cannot separate conversations around ecological crisis and climate change, refugees, food security and poverty from the female.
