Program

Makin’ the Link

Makin’ the Link takes you to a place of raw energy and subtle beauty set against the traditional tones of magical West African drums rhythms.  This piece aims to propel its audience to a stimulating heart-racing space “makin’ te link” with body, soul, mind and the physical surroundings, accompanied by a layer of amazing percussive sounds reflected in the movement of the dancers.

Dancers

Gee Moyo, Alban Doga, Nasae Evanson, Adi Predanich

The Swimmer

 A swimmer contemplates the unknown territories of the sea and negotiates his changes of survival.  While in a local pool, swimmers gaze longingly at the man cutting through the water in the fast lane.

Thrown in at the deep end, would you sink or swim?

Dancers
