Indigenous People's Day Festival – Movement Workshop #2

  • Minneapolis American Indian Center 1530 East Franklin Avenue Minneapolis, MN, 55404 United States (map)


Rosy Simas Danse Company member, Sam Mitchell (Yaqui), along with his son, Max Mitchell (both based in San Diego, California), will co-teach and co-facilitate this mini workshop. 

This workshop is designed to create a prosperous, multi generational, collaborative, choreographic dialogue between professional dancers, community dancers, and children and adults.

By celebrating multi generations, we will share the threads of memories, stories and knowledge, weaving together elements of vitality, inventiveness and empathy for this workshop. 

In the workshop we will be sharing a choreographic dance taught by Sam and Max, developed by Rosy Simas, that will continue to grow through continued conversations, check-ins and online rehearsals, culminating in a multi generational, procession on the American Indian Cultural Corridor on Franklin Avenue in June 2019. This community work in June 2019 is a part of the Weave project by Rosy Simas Danse.

This workshop is a part of NACDI’s Indigenous People’s Day Festival Oct 6 & 7, 2018 on the American Indian Cultural Corridor on Franklin Avenue, Minneapolis.
