Throughout Pauline’s life, people have made assumptions about her based on her gender, background, and race. She’s defied these expectations at every turn, tearing up the narrative that society tried to impose on her.
Now, Pauline is ready to tell the world her story. Carefully balancing dance and theatre, What If I Told You immerses us in Pauline’s world as she invites us to pause, breathe and reconsider the stories we tell about our past and the history on which we build our futures.
