All questions should go to: Iman,

Essence of Embodiment is curated by Iman Louis-Jeune, one of the curatorial dance fellows at Smush Gallery '20-21 and a dance-filmmaker herself. She actively works to uplift and engage in work that is cathartic rather than escapist.

*Films will be screened online as part of an online programming for the Essence of Embodiment Festival, in addition to a dance intensive, published zines, and a gallery exhibition. Due to COVID-19 we may have a limited in-person screening of accepted films. Due to limited physical space, we may be able to accommodate small/less-involved film installations, but our primary focus is showcasing the film itself.

KURA for Alpha'a


Kura believes that art should be a tool to stop time; together with Alpha’a we conceived a movement aiming to stimulate and foster artistic performances. We are inviting artists who work on a variety of different medias to, through new or already exhibited performances, materialize that feeling. 

This exhibition will showcase the work of 6 different artists, 2 selected by a curatorial team from KURA and the remaining coming from a open call and submission through Alpha’a’s platform. The selected artists will win a residency scholarship at Kaaysá Residency.

All works shall be submitted through Alpha’a’s website:
