…from Antiguan-Canadian poet, Motion:
to a White Boy Song debuts @ Summerworks 2011!
& Co-created by Mumbi Tindyebwa Otu
Written & Co-created
Choreographed & Co-created by Meryem Alaoui
Dancing to a White Boy Song features 3 actors, 3 stories and 3 art forms…a
multidisciplinary theatrical creation exploring the issues of youth,
immigration, culture and the tensions of ‘otherness’, told through the eyes,
voices, and bodies of 3 characters through poetry, movement and visual imagery.
Inspired by personal stories and experiences
of African youth, Dancing to a White Boy Song takes its audience through
a physical, emotional and mental journey exploring the metaphor of what it means
to “dance to the beat of the other”; how we come to define ourselves and relate
to one another in our diverse multicultural society.
