DANCING FOR HEALTH DURING THE PANDEMIC (COVID-19)
Nicole Maria performs an Indo-Persian & bellydance fusion piece to the tune "Ishq- Love & The Veil" by "Niyaz". The song is based on an Urdu poem written by the 18th century Indian poet Khwajah Mir Dard. Her dance is inspired by this time of the year, Norouz, or Persian New Year. She dedicates this piece to all of us who have been affected globally by this pandemic (COVID-19) and is dancing for peace, health, and connection.
If you feel inclined to make a donation to the arts, and have the means it would be appreciated during this time for those of us who have lost our jobs.
Resilience is a piece celebrating the endeavor to survive and rebuild in the aftermath of destruction, whether caused by nature or humans.
Resilience includes four main dance pieces in addition to smaller movement sections, dispersed with poetry and text, and performed in the style of contemporary Persian ballet, exploring the four elements: Earth, Air, Water, and Fire, their ability to create life and destroy it.
TBD (Postponed until further notice)
