“Dance and Theology: Healing What is Broken”: Ekklesia Contemporary Ballet at Goodson Chapel
Ekklesia Contemporary Ballet will perform at the Duke Divinity School chapel service in Goodson Chapel, followed by a lunchtime conversation on the intersection between dance and theology. The event is sponsored by the Theology, Medicine, and Culture Initiative; Duke Initiative for Theology and the Arts; and the Center for Reconciliation.
Ekklesia Contemporary Ballet exists to “love all and serve all” as the church embodied through the visible form of dance. Ekklesia holds a diverse compilation of repertory that spans a full spectrum of emotion, physicality, and vocabulary which address major issues our world is facing today such as poverty, inequality, and human suffering. Ekklesia’s passionate performers, choreographers, and collaborators are committed to presenting innovative work that speaks to every audience member in an effort to heal our world. Ekklesia is committed to providing education and accessibility in the art of dance to the underserved in our community. Our goal is to foster an environment for our audiences and artists where genuine discussion of life and faith can flourish.
