People Like Me 2004: "It's About Time!"

The 10th anniversary of People Like Me takes children on an interactive adventure with our mischievious main character, played by Derique. Swept away by a musical whirlwind of rhythmic and comic tour guides, he embarks on a journey into diverse cultural perspectives of time. Percussive time, seasons, life cycles, mathematcial formulas, and even geological eras are all explored through dance and music traditions of Spain, South Africa, Bolivia, Hawaii and India, tied skillfully together by body musician Keith Terry and Crosspulse.

We discover beats, pulses, and song cycles through the footwork of Yaelisa and Caminos Flamencos; the complex vocal syllables of North Indian Kathak performed by Chitresh Das Dance Company demonstrate rhythm as sacred mathematical communication and prayer. Seasons are celebrated with the energetic music of the Bolivian Andes and a harvest dance, presented by Sukay and Pachamama. We learn of day and night, work and play, slavery and freedom, from Khumbhula Dance Theater's South African Gumboot dance. The creation of islands, through Hawaiian myth and ritual, come to life with Halau Aloha Pumehanan O Polynesia. In this one-hour voyage, our hero discovers the beauty of diversity, the importance of cultural traditions, and the significance of human expression around the globe.

This year's lineup boasts all live music, and a wide range of world dance and music styles, in an engaging, educational and interactive performance. The theater experience and its supporting curriculum material present a multidisciplinary and multicultural approach to meeting recommended State Content Standards for Visual and Performing Arts, History, and Social Science, Math, and Science, and expose children to the rich diversity of performing artists who live right here in Northern California.
