Firedance is an original, two-part suite exploring the rich architecture of sound, movement, and memory. Spoken word, dance, live instrumentation, and visual culture commingle in a sublime expression and aesthetic exploration of heritage, memory, meaning, and transcendence. A creative mediation and celebration of heritage, culture, beauty, and freedom, this presentation draws on the African cultural concept of Serudj Ta (meaning: to repair and remake the world), Firedance is a lush, visual soundscape that features an exciting and innovative blend of story-based dance, music, spoken word poetry, and storytelling.
