Padl West Master Class With Darrell Jones says
PADL West presents internationally acclaimed dance artist Darrell Jones to teach a master class for the San Diego community.

Sissy: …a timid man or boy considered childish or unassertive
Vop: … a high-spirited kick tossed in the air

Sissy Vop is a collection of training counter rituals aimed at releasing enculturated oppressions in the body. Going to the edge of our physical limits is important for this release, and we will enter through a combination of rigor, rhythm and recuperative practices. Through training in (e)feminized movement modalities, sparring scores, solo states and group provocations, we will address the body and performance space as a site for transgression, transcendence and transformation.
