Devotional Choreography & Khoreia

The visual poetry of movement and gesture.

A series of pas de deux between cultures.
An orchestration of a dance about cultural kinship.
An investigation of ritual movements made during devotional practices, rites common to all faiths. The exact choreography differs, but like in any good performance on a stage, individual choreographies combine to a potentially holistic whole. The grammar and composition used within dance … applied to life. For a harmonic performance a certain generosity and empathy towards fellow performers is required. I am temporarily taking the role of a choreographer.
(ORIGIN of Choreography: from Greek khoreia ‘dancing in unison’ (from khoros ‘chorus’) + -graphy)
