Her work prioritizes the experiences of historically oppressed groups, especially transgender people and people of color, and how such identities affect the way one interacts with the world. WW is a collective consisting of Holo Lue Choy, Shayna Allen and Sophie Keller devised in early 2016 with an intention of blending together their artistic aesthetics and brining multiple perspectives based in sociopolitical identities into research processes, often resulting in multiple narratives intersecting on stage. Their work together draws from core beliefs of intersectionality and combating medi as simplification of identity politics through archetypes.
