40 Continuous Dances for Freedom is the video companion to the live Moneymaker performance in which Holly Bass dances continuously for upwards of seven hours. The choreography is built from a structured improvisation guided by the playlist, which ranges from hip-hop tracks and classic James Brown recordings to speeches by Malcolm X and clips from a BBC radio documentary on Sarah "Saartjie" Baartman. The pompadour hairstyle, polyester jumpsuit, satin cummerbund embellished with rhinestones spelling out $€X, and “bootyballs”—an oversized sculptural derriereall pay homage to two of the hardest work people in showbiz, James Brown and Baartman.
