Sign up to Twerkshop and learn the cultural history behind the ass-shaking phenomenon.

Performance artist Caroline Garcia instructs you in the bootylicious basics of dancing with your pelvis while taking you through twerking’s history within the African diaspora. A moving, jiggling critique of twerking’s mainstreaming as a form of colonisation, this intimate one-on-one performance is for those who don’t mind getting physical.

No dance experience necessary – but in the last 60 seconds, prepare to twerk it!

Creator & Performer:
Caroline Garcia
