The JOMBA! Initiative: Community Symposium

Event Type
Event Description

Deeply Rooted is excited to present this JOMBA! related program inspired by Flatfoot Dance Company’s politically and socially-charged artistic work in partnership with the University of Chicago, the South African Consulate of Chicago and Global Linkages with support from the MacArthur Foundation’s International Connections Fund. 

What is possible in a cultural exchange between Americans and South Africans? What can we learn about our commonalities and differences with regards to Slavery in America and Apartheid? DRDT and Flatfoot artists will reflect on how visiting each other’s country has altered their perspectives about the global community.

Cost $10 – Limited seating.
