Traka: Story and Movement Workshop

RSVP to (RSVP recommended, but not mandatory)

All abilities are welcome.

Explore how connection and expression can be used as a means of healing with a public story sharing and movement workshop with Jean Appolon.

Currently in residency at BCA, Appolon’s newest work Traka (“Troubles” in Haitian Kreyol) highlights how dance and culture can heal individuals and communities. Integral to the creation of this piece are public story sharing and movement workshops, with a focus on connecting the immigrant, refugee, and dance communities.

Workshop participants are invited to contribute to the creative process of this new work by sharing and moving at your level of comfort through written or movement communication. Elements shared may be woven into the premiere performance in May.
