Event description

Description

Skin(s) shares the beauty and diversity of how Native people identify and examine the contradictions, pride, joy, pain, and sorrow that arise out of our many dimensions of identity. The dance explores what we hold, reveal, and perceive through our skin.

Rosy Simas is a Minneapolis-based choreographer and teacher. She is Seneca from the Cattaraugus reservation in New York. Her work addresses how ancestry, homeland, culture, and history are stored in the body and can be expressed through dance.

Rosy Simas is a Fall 2017 Artist in Residence of Northwestern's Center for Native American and Indigenous Research and the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities. Co-presenters of the residency are the New England Foundation for the Arts, Mellon Dance Studies, the Department of Performance Studies, Program in American Studies, the Center for Writing Arts, and the Department of English.
