"Dear Bar, unfortunately on this occasion we will not be inviting you to the audition". Boss Lady is a solo work that delves into the experiences of rejection within the dance industry.

Email drafts accumulate as we write and rewrite desperate responses while sitting on our bedroom floor, until, eventually, we get up and carry on like a Boss Lady. "Thank you so much for your email"...
