Hennessy’s zine, coming from decades of practice and questioning of CI, interrogates whiteness, racism, heterosexism, and white supremacy in the dance form. “How do predominantly white alternative cultures defeat their stated intentions and wishes by reproducing mainstream or hegemonic injustices?” [p. 1]. The questioning takes place against a background of Hennessy’s experience as a dancer and teacher of CI since the late ’70s, and as a white, queer, cis male. Unique full color design with photos.
