Women's Haka Workshop

Women's Haka Workshop

New Zealand’s Māmā Mihirangi & the Māreikura, an all-female Māori world-roots production, will teach a Women’s Haka Workshop in St. Johnsbury, Monday evening, August 19, from 6:30-8:30pm. The workshop, open to girls and women ages 12 and up, will take place on the Comfort Inn Side Lawn and will introduce participants to the character, heart, and spirit of the haka. No singing or dance experience is necessary.
Haka is a summoning of strength and power as well as a display of unity. The Women’s Haka is a traditional dance that invokes and expresses a woman’s sacred potency and power. Workshop participants will learn the calls and steps of the dance as well as their history, tradition, and protocols.
Internationally renowned artist/activist and “Queen of Loops,” Māmā Mihirangi weaves ancient chants with intricate harmonies, traditional & contemporary instruments, and irresistible beats. Her dancers, the Māreikura, showcase inspiring feminine power with the women’s haka, traditional weaponry, and Māori martial arts, creating a contemporary cultural performance that is informative, inclusive and truly inspiring.
Monday evening’s workshop is a rare opportunity for Northeast Kingdom girls and women to learn authentic haka from traditional dancers all the way from New Zealand, a thrilling cultural exchange made possible by sponsorship from the Comfort Inn and Suites in St. Johnsbury and from Northern Vermont Regional Hospital.

Sankofa Danzafro - The City of Others

Sankofa Danzafro - The City of Others

Sankofa reaches deep into the urban experiences of black Colombians and pulls out a vibrant new work of dance theater.

Through movement vignettes, The City of Others unpacks the racial undercurrents of Colombia, a country home to Latin America’s second largest population of people of African descent. Witness the dreams, tensions and resistance in the Afro-Colombian dance and music of this powerhouse company. Drawing from capoeira, contemporary dance, hip-hop and African forms, Sankofa creates on stage a city in which everyone matters.

Founded by Rafael Palacios in 1997 on the Pacific coast of Colombia, Sankofa means, “to return to the root,” an African philosophy that proposes that the past is a keyhole through which to view the present. Palacios told Boston’s Fjord Review that the company’s mission “is to question the overall knowledge [and] to build a voice of self-awareness, which will allow us to reveal the ‘epistemologías’ of the African diaspora in the world. ... The City of Others is based on my own experiences and the dancers’ experiences with regard to racism in Colombia and the struggles to resist and therefore debilitate it.”
