Beautiful Struggle. April 13-15, 2012 at the King Arts Complex 
Announcing a new dance theater work directed by Esther Baker-Tarpaga. This work delves into the visibility and invisibility of race and privilege and how violence and love live on in the body’s memories. Drawing from the text of white anti racist Tim Wise and the embodied theories of the African diasporic movement circulations, Beautiful Struggle is a highly physical dance theater work that integrates live music, text, performance art. Created in collaboration with the performers: Dante Brown, Abby Zbikowski, Olivier Tarpaga, D. Sabela Grimes with live music and other compositions by Olivier Tarpaga, D. Sabela Grimes, and Michael Wall. More information here.

Local excursions to regional safari parks, a Batik making workshop and other visits are also included during the program. Students can earn credit for independent studies.  All food, transportation, and lodging are covered.  Students will each have their own room and shower.
