Tyke Tunes is Back THIS SUMMER | Water is Rising | We are Circling
CRY. FLOW. RAIN | #AGUAPATHEPEOPLE
WE ARE RISING
Summer time is around the corner, and as our
BoomShake Instructors and Facilitators take a break from our School
& Community Winter & Spring programs, we are also immersing
ourselves in deep reflection.
How do we keep efforts for liberation of our communities flowing? How do
we wade through the pains, beauty and complexity of our ancestral
lands/heritage? How keep afloat amidst fights and efforts for justice on
the lands we currently inhabit? How do we dive in and immerse ourselves
in the beauty, joy and power of each other in these trying times?
Black Lives Matter. Water is life. United We Stand. Together We Rise.
Join us as we keep the music going for the movement, and prepare a
deeeeep Fall Session using personal narratives, storytelling, music,
theater-making, and performance to explore this powerful theme of
'WATER'!! Agua Pa’ the People!
WE HAVE SUMMER WORKSHOPS! [MORE INFO BELOW]
"We Remember El Rio Lempa, the river
that cuts through El Salvador. The river that gave so much life, but
displaced so many at the hands of humans. -Carmen We hear your Cry
We Remember The Unborn and newborn infants of the Niger Delta whose
lives are sacrificed daily in the name of evil Shell, Chevron, Mobil and
the greedy Nigerian government. - Nkeiruka We hear your Cry
We Remember the people of the Narmada River, who know her as their
mother, who were forced to flee when her fields and fish drowned behind a
dam. - Virali
We hear your Cry"
-Excerpt from 'Devouring the Ripple Effect//Recipe for the Broken Hearted', an ongoing Work-In-Progress by BoomShake's Performing Core.
