About This Artist

Founded in 2010, by Baindu Conté-Coomber, Jaara has evolved from a five-member dance company into a multilayer and multidisciplinary cultural arts non-profit. Based in both Boston and San Francisco, Jaara encourages the exploration of the diverse African heritages and traditions inherent of the continent, and serves as a medium to disseminate these heritages and traditions to the broader community through dance, education and outreach.

 

 

About This Project

Recovering Home explores the unique subjectivities of identity from different ethnic and racial backgrounds, whose paths have woven together on a journey to find home. Coming from the far reaches of the globalized experience, this piece explores a convergence of quests for connection, a sense of belonging and a space to integrate our stories past and present.
