LIZ LEA present IN-LAND
Australian-born Liz Lea is becoming known as one of the most exciting British choreographers of her generation. Working internationally with contemporary and classical Indian dance and martial arts, her work is strikingly fresh, intelligent and dynamic. In-Land is a subtle, yet powerful work which has the dancer transformed from spirit to animal to woman, dancing with and responding to her shadow. RADHA Mother of Bollywood? Lea re-interprets the work of American dance pioneer Ruth St. Denis for a modern audience. A highly entertaining introductory talk explains all DhIVA Highly energetic, audaciously risk taking, this wildly theatrical work investigates the cultural dissonance created by East and West colliding. Choreographed by Canadian Roger Sinha "A riveting performer with statuesque gravity and superhuman penetrating gaze her personal synthesis of dance and martial art forms is seamless" (Pulse Magazine)
