Amelia Laytham: Rediscovering heritage through dance

About this talk: Choosing to shed her language, accent, traditions and culture in order to assimilate in the United States as a teenage immigrant, it wasn’t until Amelia Laytham embraced her Indonesian heritage through dance that she felt truly at home. With two other members of the Modero Dance Company, she performs a traditional Balinese Birds of Paradise dance to prove that it’s possible to live in duality and still be whole.
