Unapologetically Breathtaking

Feats Festival of Dance - Unapologetic Dance

July 7, 2017
Westbury Theatre

From the moment each piece begins the interplay between Indian dance and the intricate rhythms and melodies of traditional music give rise to an enchanted, trance-like state of beauty. This breathtaking evening leads us on a journey through various contemporary dances from India, both abstract and narrative, before culminating in Alberta’s most vivid generation of dancers. In these complex works, stillness is as demanding as the most intense movement, the emotional and physical commitment of the dancers is breathtaking.
