About the Event
Come witness, dance, and play at the Culminating Performance of the Sankofa Residency! The Sankofa Residency is a multi-phase project that is both rooted in the history of Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, NY, and an afro-futurist imagining of BedStuy moving forward. Taking the Ghanian concept of Sankofa-looking backwards in order to move forward-this project uses research, oral history, and collaborative imagining to facilitate a plan for residents, businesses, and stakeholders to emerge from COVID in a place of healing, thriving, and progress.
Come join us as we share our embodied research through an interactive, interdisciplinary dance performance.
Light refreshments will be served.
Please note this is an interactive, moving performance experience that will ask the audience to not only witness but to participate and shift along with the performers. Please wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to be standing, moving, and playing along with us!!!
