World Dance
1001 Nights: Our Tribal Roots – Rakadu 20th Anniversary
Rakadu Dance Theatre celebrates its 20th year in the Lexington dance community alongside guest artists Amel Tafsout and Dalia Carella! AMEL TAFSOUT- (means ‘Hope of Spring’) is a charismatic international first source master dance artist of North African Maghreb dance and has mesmerized audiences in the Middle East and North Africa, as well as Europe, New Zealand, U.S.A. and Latin America. Tafsout is an acclaimed choreographer, instructor and performer of North African Maghreb Dance as well as a poet, a storyteller, a singer, a socio-linguist and a dance anthropologist. DALIA CARELLA- is a renowned world fusion artist, choreographer, master teacher, and the Founder/ Artistic Director of the Dalia Carella Dance Collective. Her rich background has lead her to make works utilizing both ethnic and contemporary movement, that are ingrained with a deep spiritual and mystical essence. She is known for her explorations into cultural dance forms, her precise and seamless blending of traditional and modern dance in the theatrical context, and for her dark and sultry cabaret stylings, evocative of the European underground, circa the 1920s and 30s. RAKADU is a collaborative effort of many souls; each an empty vessel receiving generosity and pouring into the next. Flooded with abundance and spilling into the streets, this river carries the genuine sip to slake the thirsty mind. Rakadu seeks to master the art of conversational movement, to find the dwelling of the selfless heart, to reflect the evolution of culture and its peoples, to explore the realm of living awareness, and to open the skies to shine on both the watching eyes and the story fabric unfurling before them. Please celebrate with us as we present pieces new and classic from the Rakadu repertoire. For tickets: https://lexingtonlyric.tix.com/Event.aspx?EventCode=1095085
