Sankofa Residency’s Culminating Performance

Flyer for Sankofa residency performance

Join us for our 2022 Bed-Stuy Artist-in-Residence Kendra J. Ross’s Sankofa Residency Culminating Performance on November 12, 7:30pm at Cumbe (1368 Fulton Street). The Sankofa Residency is a multi-phase project that is both rooted in the history of Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, NY, and an afro-futurist imagining of BedStuy moving forward. Taking the Ghanian concept of Sankofa-looking backwards to move forward, this project uses research, oral history, and collaborative imagining to facilitate a plan for residents, businesses, and stakeholders to emerge from COVID in a place of healing, thriving, and progress.

Come join us as we share our embodied research through an interactive, interdisciplinary dance performance.

Performers: Kendra J. Ross, Natasha Calixte, and Dani Criss the Artist

Directed By: Wema Ragophala

Creative Production by PMMDC

This work is presented as the culminating work of the 2022 Create Change Bed-Stuy Artists in Residence of the Laundromat Project in partnership with Bailey’s Cafe and Cumbe: Center for African and Diaspora Dance.
