The Window Sex Project addresses and tackles the every day practice in which women are “window shopped,” that is forced to bear unsolicited verbal harassment from men while walking on the street. Through community workshops and choreographed performance, The Window Sex Project gives voice to these concerns and restores agency to women by equipping them to manage street harassment, celebrating their bodies and creating a public artwork - a dance performance.

The Window Sex Project is a Harlem community arts and performance initiative produced by Sydnie L. Mosley Dances in partnership with Grosvenor House YMCA, Barnard College Dance Department, Barnard Center for Research on Women, Hollaback! NYC, RINY Media, The Best Yet Market Harlem, INSPIRIT, Land Yoga, and the Citizens Committee of NYC

MNN Youth Channel Special: The Window Sex Project

Sydnie L. Mosley Dances is a New York City-based contemporary dance company presenting works that seek to actively engage the audience’s physical and emotional senses with dance performance in addition to involving audiences in the artistic process. Choreographer Sydnie L. Mosley is an emerging voice in dance who often produces work that reflects real life experiences exploring, but not limited to, interests in black cultures and the experiences of women. The movement vocabulary reflects various styles of modern, ballet, and African dance, while dancers frequently use their voice with spoken text and audible breath. Choreographed works aim to move people through dance making them feel human with works that provoke a visceral reaction to the physicality on stage, or incite curiosity and conversation.

Sydnie L. Mosley Dances has presented work at The Chen Dance Center newsteps program for emerging artists; the FIGMENT Festival on Governor’s Island; RoofTopDance, a new stage for emerging artists in Bushwick, Brooklyn; the Artists’ Salon at the Roger Smith Hotel; as a part of the New York Foundation for the Arts Boot Camp Arts Festival at Surreal Estate and Joyce SoHo; The Actor's Fund Arts Theater; the Harlem Arts Alliance Artz, Rootz & Rhythm Festival, Movement Research at Judson Church, Brooklyn Arts Exchange (BAX), The Red Carpet Theater at Taino Towers, and Barnard College. The company situates itself amongst the Harlem arts community by creating and presenting dance uptown; partnering with other Harlem artists and businesses; and focusing community-based work within Harlem.
