Jessica Warchal-King is excited to return to KYL/D's CHI Movement Arts 
Center with an evening of her own work. A long time dance artist and 
administrator with Kun-Yang Lin/ Dancers (KYL/D), the CHI Movement Arts 
Center holds a sense of home for Warchal-King.

The event includes Warchal-King‘s "Shed,” a solo described as 
“absolutely mesmerizing… intense” by The Reading Eagle.

A multi-generational cast of women directed by Warchal-King will perform 
"HOMEbody,” a 35 minute contemporary dance with original music by Paul 
Fejko. In process, the artists investigated definitions of home as 
structure, home as physical body, home as geographical place from which 
we leave and return, and home as states of rejection and acceptance. 
Filmmaker Jake Buczewski’s mini-documentary about the creative research 
makes its Philadelphia premier. Performers include Laura Baehr, Erin 
Coffey, Sarena Kabakoff, Kyleigh Kover, and Warchal-King.

Described as “beautiful and thought provoking,” the evening invites 
audiences to find joy, acceptance, and connection to their own 
experiences of home.

JCWK Dance Lab is Warchal-King’s ongoing research project combining 
education, physical dance practice, and performance. Using dance as its 
medium, JCWK Dance Lab investigates the ways that dance can be a vehicle 
for non-violent, positive social change by creating Joy, Connection, and 
Wellness through Kinesthetic stories.

HOMEbody travels to Philadelphia with the support of the Philadelphia 
Cultural Fund through the PPA Project Stream Grant. HOMEbody is 
supported in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state 
agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National 
Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. Additional support has been 
provided by Widener University’s Visual and Performing Arts Department 
and Summer Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities Program, the 
Arts at Alvernia University, and individual donors.
