The theme for this workshop is Tikkun Olam: Repairing the World. A Jewish concept defined by acts of kindness performed to perfect or repair the world. The phrase is found in the Mishnah, a body of classical rabbinic teachings. In modern Jewish Circles, tikkun olam has become synonymous with the notion of social action and the pursuit of social justice.

Lydia Hance, dubbed Houston’s “Queen of curious locations,” is the Executive and Artistic Director of Frame Dance Productions. She has been named an Emerging Leader by Dance/USA and has led Frame Dance in performances from the Galveston pier onto the METRO light rail, in the backs of U-Haul trucks, downtown tunnels, and into museums, stages, and warehouses throughout Texas for the past six years. A champion of new music composers, her work deepens interdisciplinary and multigenerational collaborations, and investigates the placement of dance in our lives.

MultiGen Dance with Frame Dance will meet for four Sundays October 30 – November 20 from 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm at the J, 5601 S. Braeswood.
