Transnational Dance Immersion: Ethical Fusion and Informed Cultural Exploration

 A transnational ‘tribal’ fusion that defies categorization

October 19, 2012 - 10:00am to October 21, 2012 - 3:00pm

Programming category: 

Fascinated by her own multi-heritage background, Donna studied the classical traditions of many cultures before finding a “home” in Silvestre Technique and transnational ‘tribal’ fusion.   After 30 years of study, she has galvanized a personal practice that defies categorization, but aesthetically highlights common denominators between dances of the North African/Arab rural communities, American hip hop and Brazilian Silvestre Contemporary technique… never a dull moment! Inventive fusion, hardcore rhythms, precision hip work, and athletic challenge are always part of the formula.  You are hereby invited to join Donna on her investigations into unfamiliar movements and extraordinary prospects in art-making.   A fantastic and adventurous sense of humor is required.  A yoga mat is essential for warm up, and knee pads may be helpful.  Please Note:  you will be subjected to the best music in the universe!
