Dakshina/Daniel Phoenix Singh Dance Company performs two Sokolow dances: "Homenaje a David Siqueiros" and "Ballade" as well as a hybrid work "Chakra" showcasing the company's multiple social interests and backgrounds. Siqueiros is based on the Mexican revolutionary painter, and is particularly timely as it draws on the painter's own text combined with several other poets to remind us that art is a powerful tool for resistance against oppression. Ballade is a light and airy summery dance that explores the joy of relationships in an abstract quartet. In Chakra, you will see excerpts of hybridity that combines modern dance and Bharatanatyam into a syncretic dance work.
At: The Dance Place (July 29 at 8pm, July 30 at 7pm)
