Traka: Story and Movement Workshop

COVID-19 Update: BCA has decided to cancel all public programs through Sunday, April 12; including public activities on our campus, tours and talks, and special events. Read more about our COVID-19 response plan.

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.

For questions or concerns, please contact Andrea Blesso Albuquerque at or 617.456.1132.
