Friday 5/1: Joyism @ Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (Peep my 1st Interview)

Binahkaye Joy tells all...about JOYISM! from Sonya Collins on Vimeo.

JOYISM! takes audiences on an dynamic, participatory movement journey by diving into themes and issues that affect us all. Binahkaye initiates a communal honoring of motherhood through danced biographies in The Mother Project. She challenges everyone to reconsider the travesty of Hurricane Katrina in a co-created movement dialogue where dance takes the place of words in New Orleans! The words of women who are incarcerated come alive in Lifelines on 57 through movement and audience participation. And of course, an experience with Binahkaye would be incomplete without a danced exploration of the mystical booty in Bootyism. Live music adds a brand new dimension to JOYISM! with Manatho "Shumba" Masani on Mbira and Eric Maring on Tabla. JOYISM! is an opportunity to embrace the dance that belongs to all of us!

Binahkaye Joy, Visionary Space Activator and Artistic Director, is launching JOYISM! this year. JOYISM! is a global movement laboratory where everything living is welcome to come and make dances together. JOYISM! honors the infinite creative powers of all people and facilitates dance experiences for personal and communal healing, artistic experimentation, and the celebration of life.

The JOYISM! show will be at the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop, 545 7th Street, SE Washington, DC 20003 in Eastern Market on Friday, May 1st. Doors open at 7:30pm and the show begins at 8:00pm. Advance ticket purchase is strongly recommended. Tickets are $15 and are available online at www.osadance.blogspot.com.
