Cultures in Motion Series Hopkins Center

Cultures in Motion

People and their cultures are in perpetual motion, in search of home in places where cultures collide and are reinvented in new forms of expression.

Isango's Magic Flute entwines Mozart's musical fairy tale with South African stories and dancing. Angélique Kidjo reclaims for Africa the songs of the Talking Heads album Remain in Light. In Amir ElSaffar's Rivers of Sound Orchestra, jazz and Arabic form a luminous stream. And we follow the restless movements of today's immigrants—increasing in number daily, pushed by war and environmental factors—in CARTOGRAPHY.

Cultures in Motion: the home for discussing cultural expression in this season’s work.
