BLAKK JAKK DANCE COLLECTIVE
SANKOFA\/JOY
Pt 1: Sankofa

This piece is a tribute to the groundbreaking 1993 film SANKOFA, directed and written by the talented Haile Gerima. SANKOFA tells the story of Mona, a Black American social media influencer, who finds herself shooting a TikTok at a sacred African burial ground in Ghana. Through a series of events, Mona is transported back in time to a plantation in North America where she assumes the identity of Shola, an enslaved African woman. In this powerful journey, Mona confronts her ancestral identity and experiences the brutal realities of slavery. Despite the unimaginable suffering, Sholas interactions with her fellow enslaved Africans are a testament to the humanity, respect, and dignity they show for one another.

Pt 2: JOY

This piece is about finding Joy and inspiration through music and movement. Displaying how different groups can unite and celebrate dance through the African diaspora. There are concepts of ripples, moving in out of phrases, and a steady Groove that makes you want to move!



SHRI KALAA MANDIR
YIN YANG DIMENSIONS OF DUALITY
Yin Yang is a fundamental concept deeply rooted in ancient philosophy and culture. It symbolizes the interconnectedness and interdependence of all things in the universe, encapsulating the dynamic balance between opposing forces.

In Yin Yang Dimensions of Duality we present the harmony and dichotomy of elements that define life, establish balance and unity, and keep the creative forces in constant cyclic motion.
