The Umfundalai Streams Performance Showcase is an extension of the Dancing Our Africa 2016 Master Class and Workshop weekend dance intensive, where dance teachers, students, artists and enthusiasts will assemble to share and deepen their knowledge from respected Master Teachers from across the country. Umfundalai Streams provides a performance venue for the diverse choreographies of artists who work with the movement vocabularies of the African Diaspora.
Choreographers/Companies are invited to apply to present their work in the Umfundalai Streams Performance Showcase, and receive valuable feedback from nationally recognized African dance practitioners, artists, and scholars. This feedback can provide an additional analysis or “reading” of the work while in process, and language with which to discuss the work in grant applications and/or marketing materials.
