“Duniya means “world” in languages as diverse as Punjabi, Farsi, Arabic, Susu (Guinea, West Africa), and Thai. The company’s work embodies this word, as it explores the forces that have brought together the members of the group and their dance and drum styles, including, but not limited to, colonization, globalization, immigration, art, dance, music, and love. Duniya Dancehall covers many corners of the globe bringing music and performance from India, West Africa, Jamaica, Latin America, and others.”
There are many ways to support Duniya’s creative work and teaching. Your donations directly fund new costumes, and hiring professional editors to put together our videos from “Half and Halves,” and “Lanyee,” so that we can continue to promote and perform these shows. They also help us to secure rehearsal space, create our promotional materials, and cover general operating expenses. All tax-deductible donations are made through our fiscal sponsor, Dancers’ Group (dancersgroup.org).
