Studio Performance—Fleur D’Orange; Hind Benali, Artistic Director

From Andrew Chatfield:

“The multi-talented Hind Benali is at the forefront of the contemporary dance scene in Morocco.”
—Morocco: Globalization and its Consequences

Choreographer/dancer Hind Benali founded the contemporary dance company Fleur D’Orange in 2006 in Casablanca, Morocco—a culture where women do not dance publicly—following her initial training in ballet and later travels to France and sub-Saharan Africa. At Wesleyan, Ms. Benali will present a studio showing with her collaborators and talk about her work, which explores the limits and freedoms of her country’s history and current practices, and the many layers of gender, culture, and religion. This event is part of “Muslim Women’s Voices at Wesleyan.”

Ever noticed that the term “hooking up” is actually pretty confusing and ambiguous? When someone wants to “hook up”, does he/she/ze means what you do? How do you know?? Come chat about how to best communicate your wants, needs, and desires with a partner (or partners) and maximize the satisfaction of all at the first workshop in our Healthy Relationships Series, “Healthy Hook Ups”!

Join us for a FREE THAI FOOD DINNER and an open, honest, awesome workshop discussing these questions and many more!
