Alicia Mullikin and Devin Muñoz: El Sueño – Velocity Dance Center @ Northwest Film Forum and NOD Theater (Seattle – Capitol Hill)
A contemporary dance film and multimedia performance created in collaboration by two Mexican-American dance artists. Director/Choreographer Alicia Mullikin and Filmmaker/Dancer Devin Muñoz explore what it means to be powerful brown women and the narrators and illustrators of their own stories. The work offers a glimpse of the woven landscapes of pain and joy echoed in both ancient and contemporary experience that are central to the film and the dancers who are part of it. The film seeks to honor the many brown women that have risked it all for the next generation of dreamers.
The evening begins at Northwest Film Forum with a screening of the film. Audiences will then head over to NOD Theater just one block away, for a celebration of Latiné culture, an open discussion with artists, live music, and a margarita bar! Audiences will also see behind-the-scenes footage and other items included in the film. Attendance for the NOD Theater celebration is included in the ticket price.
Locations: Film screening at Northwest Film Forum, followed by celebration at NOD Theater. Both on 12th Ave. (Capitol Hill)
