Dancing Earth Indigenous Contemporary Dance Creations
Dancing Earth Indigenous Contemporary Dance Creations, with Founding Director, Choreographer, and Kennedy Center Citizen Artist Fellow, Rulan Tangen, present an exciting, interactive, “behind the scenes” peek at their performance SEEDS: RE GENERATION. Students will get to meet the intertribal Indigenous dancers whose performance art reflects the cultural heritage of Native America and indigenous global cultures. Each artist will lead different activities that may include movement, song, learning a few words in Apache and Dine languages, visual art, or possible surprise activities with seeds! Through these real life, inviting, interactivities, our artists counter stereotypes and under-represented histories, while inspiring students to unearth connections between current socio-environmental landscapes and their own origins, histories, varied cultural backgrounds, languages, homelands, foods, and “seeds” of hope, resilience, and solidarity.
