Zikr Dance Ensemble presents “Mysteries, Rites & Revelations”, featuring the company’s premiere of “Mobile,” a “fascinating, striking, [and] exquisitely conceived” masterpiece of modern dance. (San Francisco Chronicle)
Choreographed in 1969 by Tomm Ruud, former dancer and choreographer with Ballet West and San Francisco Ballet, “Mobile” is a ballet for three dancers who move in slow parallelograms to the music of Adam Khachaturian’s Adagio from the Gayne Suite. According to Blake A. Samson of Fine Arts News Service, “the sheer engineering feat of [“Mobile”] is reason to see it time and time again.”
“Mysteries, Rites & Revelations” will also feature “Portals,” Zikr Artistic Director David Taylor’s critically acclaimed visionary work based on dance rituals in other dimensions, as well as a newly expanded version of “Sadhu,” which explores the enigmatic holy men of India and Nepal to the pulsating music of Philip Glass, and “Vespers,” a beautiful work for five women that celebrates the evening prayer of thanksgiving and most important part of the Catholic Liturgy of the Hours.
Don’t miss these breathtaking performances featuring an international cast of world-class dancers. To learn more about Zikr Dance Ensemble, please visit http://www.zikrdance.com.
