5: Friendships, belonging, race: social justice and jazz dance with Khadifa Wong
Play episode · 1 hr 12 min
In this episode I interview award-winning film and theatre director Khadifa Wong.

We talk about Khadifa and her journey growing up, being involved in social justice movements, struggling to find a sense of belonging in the dance and theatre world and how she used that as a catalyst to create change.

We also talk about representation vs tokenism in the theatre and film industry, navigating racism with friends, privilege and internalised racism.

You can see the trailer of Uprooted, a powerful documentary film with the sole purpose to preserve the legacy of jazz dance and to expose it's often hidden roots directed by Khadifa Wong https://uprootedfilm.com
You can connect with Khadifa and the Uprooted team including Zak Nemorin co-creative who we reference, on instagram
