connecting young people to stories of difference is vital in fostering an environment that encourages diversity and acceptance. One of the aims of schools is to nurture the growth of students, both academically and socially. Having students participate in Bukjeh programs facilitates opportunities for this growth.
A workshop focusing on dance and the movement of the body, exploring different rhythms that originate from our body and expanding that quality into dance
Students will also connect using images, and their body in the space, to replicate and mix rhythms that are natural in our body.
JUNE 16 - 23, 2020
At a time where we all need to practice physical distance, opportunities for connection and belonging are at the forefront of our daily lives. Bukjeh online brings people together by asking the question, ‘what if, instead of being told to ‘Stay at Home’ you were forced to leave your home?’
Students are invited to work and reflect alongside Bukjeh’s artists to create art in response to their perceptions of home, journeys and displacement. Through conversations with the artists, students will be given opportunities to share and discuss their perceptions, prejudices, fears and questions.Stories and artwork created may be shared to inspire Bukjeh artists creating a performance later in 2020. If interested safe and appropriate, students may be invited to participate.
