A dance company founded and directed by dance artist and educator Alicia Mullikin. The company uses dance as a platform for community engagement, healing, and empowerment of marginalized communities. EL SUEÑO actively weaponizes dance against cultural erasure and systematically deconstructs harmful narratives about brown bodies in hopes of providing representation, cultural restoration, and nurturing environments for the next generation of dance artists.
"First generation Americans are the flowers that bloom after generations of harvest"
EL SUEÑO FILM
A contemporary dance film created in collaboration by two Mexican-American dance artists. Director/Choreographer Alicia Mullikin and Filmmaker/Dancer Devin Muñoz explore what it means to be powerful brown women, to hold multitudes of pain and joy within one body, and to be the narrators and illustrators of their own stories. More info coming soon.
