Join ARENA DANCES for our weekly Studio Stories Podcast, where each week we reminisce on Twin Cities dance history with a new special guest. The next several weeks we are airing a special series, featuring artists that will premiere new work at our CANDY BOX Dance Festival July 12-16! Kicking off this mini series is Leila Awadallah – one of the festival’s Happy Hour Artists.
Leila Awadallah [leilawa] is a Palestinian American dancer, choreographer, and filmmaker based between Minneapolis and Beirut. She is in the beginnings of Body Watani, a dance project that engages performance, film, and workshops. Body Watani is premiering it’s first collaborative work-in-progress TERRANEA: hakawati of the sea at the Candy Box festival this year, following the premiere of a solo-version at the Arab American National Museum in 2020.
Studio Stories will air each Thursday at noon with new guests joining the host to reminisce and share their memories and history with our dance scene.
