Calling: a dance with faith
In this new dance theater piece, two Muslim women wrestle with their call to dance and their call to faith. The religious and artistic journeys of Natsumi and Hala, two women who are both Muslim and professional dancers, intersect in this rich performance of movement and storytelling.
Directed by Ping Chong + Company member Jesca Prudencio, Calling: a dance with faith uses interview-based scripting and a devised process to create a wholly personal vision of the artistic self in relation to Muslim identity. Downtown Art 70 East 4th Street Free with RSVP
