Contact Improvisation Contact as Connection with Mihyun Lee 

This class provides tools for increasing body-and self-awareness with curiosity; How do you find connections with yourself, others, environment, floor and the earth? Have you ever had a small talk with your fingers and toes? How do you communicate and play with others safely in nonverbal way without knowing who they are and what potential risks might there be? We do not know the answer until we experience. However, our body knows the answer already. In this class, we will become more aware of our strengths and limitations through this practice, acknowledging our body wisdom as well.

Muisi-kongo Malonga

Kimpa Vita! is a music, dance and theater narrative told through the dual lens of Kongolese and African American cultural arts traditions, exploring the controversial life of Kongolese prophet and martyr, Mama Kimpa Vita. At the heart of Kimpa Vita! are movement and poetry set to a musical score that layers the wailing cadence of African American spirituals with the textured harmonies of traditional Kongolese song and percussion.
