The Dance Center of Columbia presents “EKILI MUNDA | What Lies Within,” a visceral engagement with the African Diaspora.

The Dance Center of Columbia College Chicago presents Red Clay Dance Company in partnership with Keiga Dance Company’s performance of EKILI MUNDA | What Lies Within starting November 8. 

EKILI MUNDA | What Lies Within was created in partnership with Red Clay Dance Company and as part of the Keiga Dance Company TransAtlantic Project. Red Clay Dance Company is a Chicago-based company founded by Dance alum Vershawn Sanders Ward ’02. In 2007 Ward met Ugandan-based director of Keiga Dance Company Jonas Byaruhanga, and the two have been in creative dialogue ever since.

The performance positions the body as a physical, spiritual, and social archive of cultural history that subconsciously informs personal identity. EKILI MUNDA | What Lies Within is a visceral engagement with the African Diaspora.
