Davianna Green is an artist, scholar, and activist. A recent BA in Dance graduate from Dean College, she co-founded BlackSpeaks, an organization that empowers Black and Brown movers and brings awareness to the betterment of their institutional community. Currently she is an MFA Candidate in Dance at The Ohio State University, where her research is centered around twenty-first century Black womanhood, sexuality, and community. She examines how black women use the themes of reclamation, activism, and visibility in performance, and the continuity of black womanhood within the African diaspora, and the similarities and differences that exist within it. Her own choreographic work will soon be toured internationally in Brazil during the Dance Brazil study abroad cultural exchange with The Ohio State Dance Department, and domestically through schools in the Columbus area during the School Tour which is also curated by the dance department at Ohio State. Davianna continues to make art that questions societal norms and makes space for Black women’s stories in performance.
