Artists Without Walls, in conjunction with the Hofstra University Irish Studies’ program and the Hofstra Cultural Center, will be bringing its “Showcase” to Hofstra University on Tuesday, February 18th, 2:15pm. Over the next two weeks we will be highlighting the performers who will be appearing. We are very pleased to announce that two of the performers are currently studying at Hofstra, Koro Koroye and Priya Gupta.
Nigerian born spoken-word artist Koro Koroye, a Hofstra graduate and current graduate student, imbues the art of storytelling and spoken-word with energy, passion, and strength. Koro has appeared at The Cell Theater, the Living Room and Lehman College in New York City during the past year. Recently, Koro appeared in Charles R. Hale’s production, “Rise Up Singing: Women and the Labor Movement.” Koro both performed and wrote for the show.
Priya Gupta is a dancer and a Dance Education major at Hofstra. She is a student of Professor Darrah Carr, the founder of Darrah Carr Dance, and studied Indian classical dance with Mrugakshi Patel, an accomplished exponent of dance and well known choreographer of Indian folk dances. Priya will be performing a style of Indian classical dance called Bharatnatyam.
We are thrilled to have these two great young talents as part of Artists Without Walls’ Showcase.
