Explore how dance, culture, and community can be pathways to healing through a story and movement workshop with Jean Appolon.

Currently in residency at Boston Center for the Arts, Appolon’s newest work Traka (“Troubles” in Haitian Kreyol) explores the impact of his father’s murder in Haiti in 1991 and the healing capabilities of dance, culture, and community. As part of his residency, Appolon will lead a community workshop with a focus on connecting the immigrant, refugee, and dance communities.

Workshop participants are invited to contribute to the creative process of this new work by sharing and moving at your level of comfort through written or movement communication. Elements shared may be woven into the Traka show week performances at the BCA’s Plaza Theatre May 27th-31st, 2020.

All abilities are welcome. Workshop is free and open to the public.
