“...stunning, with virtuosic displays of endurance, vocal play, and extensive movement vocabularies.” -- Culturebot

Unapologetic liberation. Authentic selves. Chicago to Kampala, and back again.

Chicago choreographer Vershawn Sanders-Ward met Uganda-based Jonas Byaruhanga in 2007 and the two artists have been in dialogue ever since. EKILI MUNDA | What Lies Within positions the body as a physical, spiritual, and social archive of cultural history that subconsciously informs personal identity. Created as part of the TransAtlantic Project, a long-term cultural exchange between Red Clay Dance Company and Keiga Dance Company, EKILI MUNDA | What Lies Within is a visceral engagement with the African Diaspora.
