Indigenous Dance Residency

  • 5:30–8pm / Nickerson-Rossi Dance Theater
  • 611 S. Palm Canyon Drive, Suite 10 / Palm Springs, California 92264

Our inaugural Indigenous Dance Residency featured guest, Julenda Satow Freeman, will navigate us through a series of three post-modern dance works that she choreographed in a week-long residency at the Nickerson-Rossi Dance Theater.

Julenda will encourage conversations with the audience as she displays historic photography, film, and share her family’s story. The Palm Springs International Dance Festival opens the doors to the public to learn, experience, and understand the culture of Native American people. We question, and will inform where they stand in today’s society.

“I  will weave my family’s story within the larger history of colonization and assimilation practices, which ultimately led to a cultural loss for many Indigenous families, my own included. I hope to shed light on the cultural disconnect that occurred due to forced relocation, stolen land, dance bans, genocide, residential boarding schools, and policies such as the Dawes Act."

Time. Space. Energy.

  • 7–8:30 pm / Nickerson-Rossi Dance House
  • 611 S. Palm Canyon Drive, Suite 10 / Palm Springs, California 92264

The human mind operates by habits, shortcuts, simplifications. Our senses are limited. We are guided by biases. We reduce the world to ease our functioning in it. We put one foot in front of the other and we get by.

But the deepest natures of reality, as revealed by science, can be utterly strange and unintuitive. Much of the universe operates in ways far outside of our common sense. The familiar transforms into something quite unfamiliar. In this process, there is room for artistic exploration.

This music ensemble also features vocals from our locally celebrated artists Raymond Del Barrio, Kellee McQuinn, and Christine Tringali Nunes.

Art can break the conventions of perception and deliver new understandings. We encourage our audience to open their minds, take in the experience, and enjoy the visual beauty.

Join us for the reception before the program for a social hour at the dance house before the program begins.
