Skin(s) - Performance by Rosy Simas Danse
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.
