As our company prepares for the opening of a major work, "Far From Home," Regina Klenjoski Dance Company (RKDC) is offering the Wichita community two FREE workshops in February that will give participants an opportunity to explore their personal stories of home, immigration, and culture through poetry writing and creative movement. These workshops are a community art-making opportunity that will bring together immigrants and non-immigrants in Wichita in a space where we can safely explore our personal stories and have our voices be heard.
Los Angeles poet therapist Jennie LInthorst will guide participants in writing poetry about the places, people, food, objects, and experiences that they associate with the larger theme of home. After leading simple warm-up exercises designee for participants of all abilities, Regina Klenjoski and dancers from RKDC will help participants discover physical expressions of their poetry. The workshop culminates in a reflective discussion over a delicious lunch provided by The Light at Omar’s Kitchen.
All ages, races, nationalities, and abilities are welcome. No experience in poetry or dance is necessary -- just bring curiosity to reflect upon your story, courage to share with others, and willingness to join in a collective human experience.
Regina Klenjoski Dance Company is dedicated to nurturing the creative and collective power of our surrounding communities. We invite you to experience the unifying force of art in our world and know first-hand the compassion and empathy that art can foster.
