The Culture Bearers
April 29 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pmFREE
A Cultural Institution supports the preservation and promotion of a specific culture. The Culture Bearers embody this and share it with the community by influencing and engaging students with the rich traditions, music and dance of their respective global connections.
Olivia Serrano of Ensemble Español and Jinoo Varghese of Soorya Dance School bring their distinctive dance styles together to discuss the similarities and differences in form, technique and performance. Each artist will explore and respond to the same piece of music through improvisation and choreography. Afterwards, they will have a conversation on what they noticed on shared lineages of their forms, how most dances are culturally specific, the concept of “Classical” dance and how cultural dances are not seen as “technical,” teaching strategies, and much more.
