MINNEAPOLIS (Oct. 21, 2016) — Rosy Simas Danse and Intermedia Arts present the world premiere of “Skin(s) Dance | Visual Arts Exhibit | Film | Web Media Project” at Intermedia Arts.
The Opening Reception will be held at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21 at Intermedia Arts, 2822 Lyndale Ave South, Minneapolis. A Dance Performance will be held Friday-Sunday, Oct. 21-23, 2016; and an Exhibition will run from Oct. 11 through Nov. 5.
Skin(s) shares the beauty and diversity of how Native people identify and examines the contradictions, pride, joy, pain, and sorrow that arise out of our many dimensions of identity.
Minneapolis-based choreographer Rosy Simas (Seneca) is sharing her new project Skin(s) in the Twin Cities over the month of October. Skin(s) is a dance work, a visual art exhibit, a film, and a web media project featuring work by Hilary Abe, Carolyn Lee Anderson, James Autio, Julie Buffalohead, Andrea Carlson, Holo Lue Choy, Elizabeth Day, Aza Erdrich, Heid E. Erdrich, Marlena Myles, Valerie Oliveiro, Lela Pierce, François Richomme, Rosy Simas, Jonathan Thunder, Maggie Thompson, Rory Wakemup, Dyani White Hawk, Taja Will, and Marne Zafar.
The dance work explores what we hold, reveal, and perceive through our skin. The dance is housed within a paper environment with a surround sound score and moving images. Simas has created moving images from her travels to urban and rural Native communities.
The Skin(s) exhibition is a showcase of artworks by Minnesotans who express multi-dimensional identities from Dakota, Ojibwe, Ponca, Lakota, Navajo, and other indigenous nations. These paintings, prints, sculptures, and films reveal the power and diversity of urban Native artists.
