Kriye Bode is a term that signifies the call to participate. Kriye Bode calls people to join together to dance, sing, drum and rejoice in the energy of life, as a community. As the artistic founder of Kriye Bode, Peniel Guerrier has dreamt of bringing this Haitian experience to the people of New York. The first Kriye Bode symposium took place in the spring of 2005.
The attendees participate in an interactive and riveting lecture on Haitian folklore followed by African and Haitian dance classes and a drum circle. The dance classes and drum circle give meaning to movements and rhythms discussed in the lecture. The day ends with a performance by Peniel's dance students, which bring the lessons of the workshops to life.
The performance allows the workshop participants to see what the dance looks like in full costume and live drumming.
Kriye Bode has since become an annual spring symposium. Every year the program grows and becomes more enriching than the previous year.
