Spoken Movement

The combined power of poetry and dance

In the Spoken Movement Track we will explore the connections between poetry and dance while sharing skills in a variety of movement and writing practices.We will create collaborative performances that tell the stories we need to transform ourselves and our world. Dance and poetry are some of the oldest forms of media. They take the stories we hold in our bodies, hearts, and communities, and translate them into an expressive and compelling language. The power of poetry and dance is increased when these art forms are combined.

This track is coordinated by McKersin Previlus,Present-Day Dance Theatre; Chaylin Diaz, Young Voices Silent Cries Citizen Schools; Tu Phan, Dorchester Organization Training Initiative
