Zikr Dance Ensemble's 2021 Season
Zikr’s 2021 Season is entitled "Lifting the Veil" and will feature a world premiere, likewise titled, by Zikr Artistic Director David Taylor. "Lifting the Veil" will focus on the hidden forces that have been directing and assisting mankind behind the scenes for centuries and which now are being revealed for the first time in our current age. This spectacular new work will also feature breathtaking film projections and digital graphic effects created by cutting-edge visual artist Travis Powell from Deep Space Drive-In and a stunning set design by internationally acclaimed visual artist George Peters. Also on the program with the critically acclaimed "Runes", hailed as a masterpiece, and "Oracle", which will feature a totally new set by designer Jeff Rusnak.
“The collective talent David Taylor gathers for Zikr's productions create an experience that is both surreal and emotionally moving....the atmosphere is created with gorgeous lighting, image projections and elegant costumes. David Taylor's vision is on the pulse of traditions that are beneficial to remember and or relearn. Spirituality is the force behind his work. Creating spiritual theater for a ‘niche' audience is a responsibility one can’t deliver without understanding and knowing the subject being expressed. This is what I appreciate most about his work. He dances the talk. An artist of his caliber has a lot of influence on the future waves of a movement. It is clear that David and the Zikr Dance Ensemble create outside of the conventional box. With a strong foundation in the classic styles of ballet and modern dance and an inspirational calling to pull from ancient traditions. Zikr’s performances are beautiful, artistic and not to be missed.”

"Oracle is a Masterpiece of contemporary dance. The choreography held athleticism in strict service to uncommonly graceful and evocative movement in every performance. Bravo!"
