October 16, 2018, Tuesday - Free Javanese Dance Workshop with Wisnu Wicaksono at Southern Theater

Time: 5:30 PM – 7 PM

Location: Southern Theater, 1420 Washington Avenue S

Free Javanese Dance Workshop with Wisnu Wicaksono

Join us for a workshop on classical Javanese dance, led by visiting artist Wisnu Wicaksono. Material is suitable for both male and female dancers. Some dance experience recommended, but not necessary. Participants will be working in bare feet.

Wisnu Wicaksono is a choreographer and dancer based in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. A graduate of the Indonesian Institute of the Arts, Yogyakarta, he is the founder, director, and choreographer of Cakil Squad, a dance company that combines traditional Javanese dance forms with hip-hop, acrobatics, and other modern forms. His work has been performed at major international and Indonesian art festivals, including World Dance Day, the International Ramayana Festival, and the Asia Trianale Summer Arts Festival, Tokyo. He teaches and leads workshops on traditional Javanese dance as well as hip-hop and Latin dance throughout Indonesia.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
