PROJECT NARRATIVE

Kriyol Dance! Collective envisions its role in the future of socially engaged arts as that which helps to cultivate community consciousness for collective healing.

By creating culturally-informed work and addressing detrimental changes in physical, social, and political contexts of our community, we hope to influence the next generation of activists, visionaries, and advocates. By privileging stories and lived experiences, we hope to build the collective self.

The Nou Series is an experiment in embodied knowledge, resistance, and history that prioritizes “nou” (“us” in Haitian Creole). By exploring the history of The Wyckoff House, documented memories of native Lenape peoples and enslaved Africans in Canarsie, and the migration of Black Caribbeans to Brooklyn, through a lens of muscle memory and spirituality, we hope to build a connected narrative and express it through movement. Our goal is that by positioning our bodies as museum installations we can expand and interrogate stories and processes of cultural preservation and community identity.

This workshop is part of the Protest Garden Project, made possible in part by the Lincoln Center Cultural Innovation Fund, which is generously supported by The Rockefeller Foundation and administered by Lincoln Center.
