V-Day with Revolva

Revolva On V-Day, as many hoopers were spinning up justice with One Billion Rising, in Oakland Revolva hooped up some of her own. “One year ago today, in exasperation with political commentary on rape, I came out publicly (for the first time in 17 years)—as a ‘survivor'”, she said, noting, “I spoke to a 500-person crowd on the steps of Oakland CA’s City Hall, at a strike I had co-organized to end violence against women.” A year later on Valentine’s Day she something else that was revolutionary, she danced. Returning to City Hall alone with her hoops, she also spun up her most impressive and emotional work to date. Filmed by Spiral, this is a video not to be missed. She lives in Oakland, California, USA, and the soundtrack is “Shake It Off” by Florence + the Machine. It’s available on iTunes.
