Our Commitment

    We hope first and foremost to inspire the women of the Lukome Center and the children of the community to use dance as a tool to work through the traumatic events they have experienced and to celebrate their culture. Tuzina believes that each person has an important personal story to tell, and we want to enable them to tell it using the universal language of dance. We also want to raise awareness about the issues that continue to impact the lives of these women, such as the war against the Lord’s Resistance Army. We will therefore document the work we do with them and create a student film emphasizing what we learned about these conflicts. When we return to the U.S., we will hold screenings of the film. We will also choreograph and perform works based upon our interaction with the children..
