This work is dance-based research into the lived experiences of women living and working in the Flint area, Michigan. It is an attempt to take the body seriously when we talk about women’s work.  Untitled: women’s work is both scholarly art and artistic research using narrative inquiry, dance and film as research methodology.   In it women express what they hope for in a good job and the barriers they encounter in searching for and keeping them.  Specifically we draw out two themes in brining home the lived experience of working: rhythms and relationships and their continual establishment, disruption, negotiation and maintenance.
