The nature of power is elusive, especially in the fields of arts and culture. In the aftermaths of #MeToo and BLM we have noticed how difficult and yet necessary it is to talk about power, hierarchies and responsibilities. The way to a safer and more inclusive dance field is to increase transparency in who is holding power, how are people appointed, how decisions are made and who are the gatekeepers.
