Morning movement tells your body that it's time to be awake. During Isaac Julien | Lina Bo Bardi: A Marvellous Entanglement the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art’s new Movement Mornings program will take place in the museums lobby and will explore Afro-Brazilian dance and movement forms, taking inspiration from the esteemed Balé Folclórico company in Bahia and the Araká Performance Collective shown in the film installation.

Tamara Williams, Assistant Professor of Dance at UNC-Charlotte, will lead these workshops. 

Who can participate?
