Gomela/to return: Movement of Our Mother Tongue - Directed by Stephanie McKee

Ignite/Arts Dallas and the South Dallas Cultural Center present Junebug Productions’ Gomela/to return: Movement of Our Mother Tongue, directed by Stephanie McKee. Gomela, a Bantu word, means “to go back to/to return.” Developed by dancers Kesha McKey, Kai Knight and Jeremy Guyton and poet Sunni Patterson, this dance theater performance takes the audience on a journey through time and space, highlighting the vibrant and percussive movements and stories that breathe life into ancient art forms (African dance and drumming) and new artistic expression (jazz, spoken word, hip-hop), illuminating the connection between Africa, Haiti and New Orleans.
