28 Apr Zikr Dance Ensemble Presents: Runes
Michael D. Palm Theatre September 29th
Zikr Dance Ensemble presents Runes. Runes will focus on the ancient magical northern European alphabet as it was used in its symbolic form for divination and prophecy. This stunning new work will feature the use of a cyr wheel along with a breathtaking set of monolithic structures designed by Perspective Design Fabrication visionaries Devin Gores and Charles Lefkowitz.
Also on the program will be one of the most intriguing and historic samples of The Gurdjieff Sacred Movements, a 2000 year old year-old work entitled “The Assyrian Women Mourners”, along with the Zikr Dance Ensemble’s signature work and audience favorite, “In Your Eyes”.
Zikr Dance Ensemble is excited to announce a major new collaboration. Internationally acclaimed Persian dance master Shahrzad Khorsandi will create a new work entitled “Atash” (“fire” in Farsi) that will be staged for the Zikr Dance Ensemble’s female dancers.
The Zikr Dance Ensemble’s stellar cast of international dance artists will include numerous guest artists from the Colorado Ballet along with Zac Bigbee, guest artist from Taos,
