"EMME YA: Expedition" - Kenneth Rainin Foundation

“EMME YA: Expedition”

Explores Black indigeneity, isolation, gendering and connection to time and place through restorative dance practices found in Black Futurism. In partnership with choreographer and Black dance scholar Dr. Halifu Osumare, EMME Ya will draw on traditional dances and feminist rituals of Mali’s Dogon people and expand upon Africanist principles of improvisation.
