About the program:
Working inter-generationally and with dance enthusiasts to professionals, the Afro- Caribbean workshop will use the KasheDantek technique to explore movement to support a afro-contemporary dance workshop linking African, Afro-Caribbean and dancehall vocabulary under the philosophy “indeed we all breathe, feel and dance”. Participants will be lead through a warm up, movement and group creation.
KasheDance is an Afro-Contemporary dance company with roots in Toronto and branches connecting it to the United States and the Caribbean. The company is unique in Canada in its use of the Critical Response Process to create, research and present dances that give voice to the realities of African Diasporic experiences. A creative practice based on traditional and contemporary diasporic languages (“KasheDantek”) has helped the company build its audience, connect to established artists while focusing on performance, as well as education and outreach opportunities. KasheDance invites everyone to dance, move and create in a shared experience. Kevin A. Ormsby is the Artistic Director of KasheDance, and will lead the Creatives in Residence project.
