Justice Miles presents choreographic work Soul of Flowers as Visiting Music, Race and Social Justice artist in Residence at the Metropolitan State College of Denver

January 19, 2023 @ 2:50 pm


Performance: April 13th, 2023 4:30pm
at the King Center Concert Hall at the Metropolitan State University of Denver
Free and Open to the Public

Incorporating elements of flamenco and contemporary dance, Miles will share her
floral themed choreographic work, Soul of Flowers this spring as the Metropolitan
State University of Denver’s Music, Race and Social Justice Visiting Artist in Residence.
Inspired by botanical research and JJ Grandville’s “The Flowers Personified,” which is a
novel about flowers that turn into humans and exhibit different personality traits
based on Victorian floral symbolism, Soul of Flowers presents vignettes of different
flowers’ lives that are symbolic of human emotions. Featuring guest appearances
from classical music duo Solazur(https://www.guitarandcello.com/) and dancers (Rhianna Cranston, Bella Boné/Anabella Owens, and Layla Jordan), Miles will take the audience on a multi-disciplinary journey of mood, color, dance vocabulary, music and poetic text that boldly explores the soul. With a soundtrack ranging from flamenco to classical
music to R&B, “Soul of Flowers” is a dynamic work that seeks to celebrate diversity
and the human spirit. The performance and social justice will premiere April 13th at
4:30pm at the Metropolitan State University of Denver’s King Center and will be free
and open to the public.
