Meet Jamila Kekulah

Jamila Kekulah is ever evolving in this space time continuum. Jamila is the creator of The Moving Soul, a holistic somatic movement practice that bridges the gap between soma, psyche and soul.
They cultivate practices of awareness, sensing and feeling the potency of the bodymind connection. Their studies as a dancer, dance/movement therapist, Gyrokinesis teacher, zen shiatsu, and mindfulness guide ground their work.

Jamila received their MA from Columbia College Chicago and BFA from Kent State University.

As a movement artist, Jamila creates performances rooted in spirit, exploring the inner landscape of self, others, and nature. They are
currently a 23/24 Co-MISSION artist in residence at Links Hall. In 2023 they were a New Works artist with Synapse Arts. It is their mission to guide folks into relationship with themselves and to be at home in their body. They envision a world where folks live, love, and relate with each other from an embodied and mindful place.

During Jamila's fellowship from February - July 2024 Jamila intends to focus on the next iteration of their work Lay your Burdens Down. They plan to refine and reexamine the wip to work with calling in sacred support through prayer requests. Stay tuned for announcements and public offerings.
